Organic geochemistry of Cretaceous black shales from the Galicia Margin, supplement to: Meyers, Philip A; Dunham, Keith W; Ho, Eileen S (1987): Organic geochemistry of Cretaceous black shales from the Galicia Margin, Ocean Drilling Program Leg 103. Organic Geochemistry, 13(1-3), 89-96

Organic-carbon-rich "black shales" from three different Cretaceous episodes sampled during Ocean Drilling Program Leg 103 have been studied by organic geochemical methods. Rock-Eval analysis, carbon isotope data, and lipid biomarkers show organic matter to contain varying proportions of marine and continental materials. In Hauterivian-Barremian organic-carbon-rich turbiditic marlstones, major amounts of land-derived organic matter are found. Aptian-Albian black-colored shales are interspersed within green claystones, from which they differ by containing more marine organic matter. An abbreviated...
