Mud and Mudstones: Sediment Dispersal, Lithofacies Variability and Organic Carbon Preservation
Lithofacies variability in fine-grained sedimentary successions is poorly known relative to that present in other sedimentary strata. In most existing models, researchers have argued that the mechanisms that underpin facies variability are produced by a combination of detrital inputs to the basin, primary production in the water column and diagenesis once...
Lithofacies variability in fine-grained sedimentary successions is poorly known relative to that present in other sedimentary strata. In most existing models, researchers have argued that the mechanisms that underpin facies variability are produced by a combination of detrital inputs to the basin, primary production in the water column and diagenesis once the grains have been produced. In order to investigate the validity of these models, a fine-grained, mudstone succession (Cleveland Basin) exposed on the Yorkshire Coast of NE England has been investigated using a combination of field, optical, electron optical, and geochemical methods. Analyses reveal that there is a great deal of cryptic lithofacies variability preserved on <10-2 m), commonly upward-fining, exhibit triplet fabrics and low angle ripple lamination, contain widely differing proportions of both detrital and productivity derived components, and have been subjected to varying bioturbation and early diagenesis. Existing models used to explain lithofacies variability underestimate the episodic and dynamism character of this sedimentary system.
Since launching the first textbook rental site in 2006, BookRenter has never wavered from our mission to make education more affordable for all students. Every day, we focus on delivering students the best prices, the most flexible options, and the best service on earth. On March 13, 2012 BookRenter.com, Inc. formally changed its name to Rafter, Inc. We are still the same company and the same people, only our corporate name has changed.
