Isotopic survey of diagenetic carbonates, at DSDP Leg 63 Holes

Kenneth A Pisciotto & John J Mahoney
Authigenic carbonates, principally calcium-rich dolomites, with extremely variable isotopic compositions were recovered in organic-rich marine sediments during Leg 63 drilling off southern California and Baja California. These carbonates occur as thin layers in fine-grained, diatomaceous sediments and siliceous rocks, mostly deposited during the Neogene. A combination of textural, geochemical, and isotopic evidence indicates these dolomites formed as cements and precipitates in shallow subsurface zones of high alkalinity spawned by abundant CO2 and methane production during...
