Deoxygenation and organic carbon sequestration in the Tethyan realm associated with the Middle Eocene Climatic Optimum

Abstract:

The Middle Eocene Climatic Optimum (MECO; ~40 Ma) stands out as a transient global warming phase of ~400 kyr that interrupted long-term Eocene cooling, associated with a rise in atmospheric CO2 concentrations that has been linked to a flare-up in Arabia-Eurasia Revised manuscript for submission to GSA Bulletin continental arc volcanism. Increased organic carbon burial in the Tethys Ocean has been proposed as a carbon sequestration mechanism to bring the MECO to an end. To further test these ...
