A striking feature of the formation is cyclic distribution of organic matter (OM) at multiple scales (see below), Mineralogy and sedimentology of Pleistocene sediment in the South China Sea (ODP Site 1144 Proc. ODP, Sci. ResultsPDF>. [Cited YYYY- MM-DD] 2 FRE 2566 ORSAYTERRE This paper focuses on five OM-rich horizons, dating from Kimmeridgian?Tithonian times (Late Jurassic ), that can be correlated across the entire basin: the so-called " ceintures organiques " or organic-rich intervals (ORIs) defined by Herbin and Geyssant (1993) and Herbin et al. To interpret paleoenvironmental conditions in the basinal facies (Kimmeridge Clay Formation), many authors have studied the degree of bottom-water oxygenation using various approaches: paleontology, taphonomy, ichnology, and sedimentology, pp.1-21, 1985.

. Saelen, These studies indicate that, at the scale of the Wessex?Weald basin, the water column was frequently stratified and prone to the development of dysoxic or anoxic bottom conditions (e.g, 1979.

W. Wignall, H. Tyson, and P. Saelen, On the basis of the presence of isorenieratene derivatives in the sediments inferred the development of Chlorobiaceae in the water column and concluded that the chemocline was at least periodically in the photic zone. The water stratification created conditions favorable to Type II OM preservation) although the water stratification may have been disrupted more or less frequently by turbulent events, allowing bottom ventilation and colonization (Wignall, pp.86-107, 1985.

. Résumé, cinq intervalles riches en matière organique (MO), appelés " ceintures organiques " , datés du Kimméridgien-Tithonien, peuvent être corrélés, à partir des environnements distaux du Dorset et Yorkshire (Angleterre), jusqu'aux environnements proximaux du Boulonnais. Ces ceintures se superposent à une cyclicité d'épaisseur métrique, faisant alterner faciès riches et faciès pauvres en MO. Cette cyclicité dite " primaire " résulterait de forçages de type Milankovitch, Ce travail porte sur la géochimie inorganique des roches de la KCF (forages du Yorkshire) et des falaises du Boulonnais, avec comme objectif de déterminer si les cinq ceintures ont été gouvernées par les mêmes facteurs paléoenvironnementaux. L'accent a porté sur quelques éléments majeurs (Al, Si et Fe) et les éléments métalliques traceurs des conditions redox

K. Key-words.-?-late-jurassic and . Clay, dated from Kimmeridgian-Tithonian times, can be correlated from distal depositional environments in Dorset and Yorkshire (UK) to the proximal environments in Boulonnais, northern France. The ORIs are superimposed on a meter-scale cyclic distribution of organic matter (OM), referred to as primary cyclicity, which is commonly interpreted to result from Milankovitch climate forcing. The present work addresses the distribution of redox-sensitive and/or sulfide-forming trace metals and selected major elements (Si, Al and Fe) in Kimmeridge Clay shales from the Cleveland Basin (Yorkshire) and the Boulonnais cliffs with two objectives: 1) to determine whether the ORIs formed in similar paleoenvironments , and 2) to identify the mechanism(s) of OM accumulation. High-resolution geochemical data from primary cycles in the Yorkshire boreholes (Marton and Ebberstone boreholes), were studied and the results are then applied with lower resolution sampling at the ORI scale in the Flixton borehole and Boulonnais cliff. Good correlations are found between total organic carbon (TOC) vs Cu/Al and Ni/Al, but relationships between TOC and Mo/Al, V/Al and U/Al are more complex. Cu and Ni enrichment is interpreted to have resulted from passive accumulation with OM in an oxygen-deficient basinal setting, which prevented the subsequent loss of Cu and Ni from the sediment. Mo and V were significantly enriched only in sediments where considerable amounts of OM (TOC>7 %) accumulated, the result of strongly reducing conditions and OM burial. At the scale of the Flixton ORIs, the samples with the highest Mo and V concentrations also show relative Fe enrichment, suggesting pyrite formation in the water column (combination of euxinic conditions and presumably low sedimentation rates) Samples from all ORIs were slightly enriched in Si relative to Al, interpreted as reflecting decreased sediment flux during transgressive and early-highstand systems tracts. The data show that in some ORIs, OM accumulation proceeded while productivity was not particularly high and sediments were not experiencing strong anoxia The common feature linking these Bull, Boulonnais Abstract. ? In the Kimmeridge Clay Formation of the Wessex-Weald Basin other ORIs, OM accumulation was accompanied by widespread anoxia and possibly euxinic conditions in distal settings. Though somewhat different from each other, the ORIs have all developed during episodes of reduced terrigenous supply, pp.175-491, 2004.
