Summary
Abstract: Striking cyclic interbeds of laminated dark-olive to black marlstone and
bioturbated white to light-gray limestone of Neocomian (Early Cretaceous) age,
the Blake-Bahama Formation, have been recovered at Deep Sea Drilling Project
(DSDP) sites in the North Atlantic. The Blake-Bahama Formation is equivalent
to the Maiolica Formation that outcrops in the Tethyan regions of the
Mediterranean and ... View entire text
