Aim of the book:
Isotopic studies combined with further geochemical, lithological,
mineralogical and paleontological investigations have been widely used in reconstructing Cretaceous marine and continental environments.
Furthermore stable and radiogenic isotope trends play an important
role in the interpretation of the causes and consequences of biotic
turnovers at stratigraphic boundaries as well as global correlations.
The focus of this book is to present new advances, case studies and long term scientific debates concerned with Cretaceous events, magmatism, temperature calculations, variations in atmospheric CO2 levels, switch on/switch off mechanisms as well as temporal extent of oxic and anoxic events.
Further goals will be the consistent correlation of isotope events between stratigraphic sections. Contributions are solicited of all isotopic
studies, radiogenic (Nd/Sm, Rb/Sr, 53Cr/52Cr etc.) as well as stable
isotope studies (d13C, d18O, d14N, d34S, etc), that are relevant for the understanding the evolution of Earth during the Cretaceous.
Deadline for Title and Authors of contribution: June 30
