Summary
Abstract: A continuous seawater sulfate sulfur isotope curve for the Cenozoic with a
resolution of ~1 million years was generated using marine barite. The sulfur
isotopic composition decreased from 19 to 17 per mil between 65 and 55 million
years ago, increased abruptly from 17 to 22 per mil between 55 and 45 million
years ago, remained nearly constant from 35 to ~2 million years ago, and has
decreased ... View entire text
