Abstract

The Leg 133 sites differ from other anoxic hemipelagic areas in which extensive sulfate reduction and methanogenesis have been documented in that the sediments are dominated by CaCO3. Recrystallization of calcium carbonate apparently buffers the isotopic composition of the system, masking large isotopic changes that might be induced by additions of isotopically light or heavy CO2 derived from the processes of sulfate reduction and methanogenesis. The dolomite does not appear to be preferentially located in the portion of the cores in which sulfate is absent. -from Author
