Driver of eustatic change during the early Aptian Oceanic Anoxic Event 1a (∼120 Ma)


"Sea-level changes exert an important control on oceanic circulation and climate evolution. Researchers have proposed that sea-level rise favored accumulation of sediments enriched in organic carbon during oceanic anoxic events (OAEs), although high-frequency sea-level changes and their controlling mechanism have remained poorly constrained. Here we present a detailed sedimentological and geochemical study on Aptian (Lower Cretaceous) shallow-water carbonates of the Dariyan Formation exposed in the Zagros fold belt of southern Iran. [...]".
