Abstract

The estimated mid-Cretaceous primary production rates are as much as an order of magnitude lower than those measured in today's oceans. An evaluation of dissolved oxygen budgets using a simple oceanic circulation model indicates very low deep-water renewal rates in mid-Cretaceous oceans.-from Authors
