Supplement to: Renard, Maurice; Richebois, Gilbert; Létolle, René (1983): Trace element and stable isotope geochemistry of Paleocene to Coniacian carbonate samples from Hole 516F, comparison with North Atlantic and Tethys Sites. In: Barker, PF; Carlson, RL; Johnson, DA; et al. (eds.), Initial Reports of the Deep Sea Drilling Project (U.S. Govt. Printing Office), 72, 399-420, https://doi.org/10.2973/dsdp.proc.72.111.1983
This paper presents data on trace elements (Sr, Mg, Na, K, Mn, Fe, Ni, Cr) and isotopes (13C, 18O) on the carbonate fraction of bulk sediments from the Coniacian to Paleocene samples of Hole 516F. Relationships of trace elements to mineralogy and stratigraphic position are discussed at length, with special emphasis on 1) the differences between Hole 516F and other oceanic sites, and 2) the transitions observed at the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary. Isotope data are compared to those obtained in other localities of the same age. The sections show the same major 13C variations at the Cretaceous/Tertiary boundary, indicating that this event is a planetary phenomenon.
