Abstract

Outlines the salient features and inferred depositional regimes for black shales in the stratigraphic record and provide guidelines for further study. Includes a discussion of OC preservation in modern marine environments as a prelude to interpretation of the ancient record, and of proposed biotic and geochemical indicators of degree of oxygenation in the water column. -from Authors
