Stable isotopic compositions of carbon and nitrogen and organic carbon content of sediments ranging from the Pliocene to the Pleistocene-Holocene in age from the Oman Margin (ODP Sites 724 and 725) are reported. In general, the organic carbon content is greater than 2% at Site 724. Prior to the Pleistocene-Holocene at this site, sediments with higher content of organic matter were deposited owing to favorable preservation conditions and/or higher productivity. In the Pleistocene, lower amounts...
