Abstract

Carbonate concretions can form as a result of organic matter degradation within sediments. However, the ability to determine specific processes and formation temperatures of particular concretions has remained elusive. Here, we employ concentrations of carbonate-associated sulfate (CAS), δ^(34)S_(CAS) and clumped isotopes (along with more traditional approaches) to characterize the nature of concretion authigenesis within the Miocene Monterey Formation.
