Isotope curves delineating the δ13Ccarb and δ16O variations across the Cambrian-Ordovician boundary at Green Point, western Newfoundland (Canada) are presented. The δ13Ccarb profile of the section reveals a composite (3 peaks) negative shift of about 6.0%0 and starts immediately at the base of bed 23 of the Broom Point Member. The 13Ccarb profile ties to conodont and graptolite zones and indicates that the lowest occurrence of planktic graptolites in Bed 25 largely coincides with the C. lindstromi s.l. conodont Zone i.e. below the Iapetognathus? conodont Zone.

Abstract

Isotope curves delineating the δ13Ccarb and δ16O variations across the Cambrian-Ordovician boundary at Green Point, western Newfoundland (Canada) are presented. The δ13Ccarb profile of the section reveals a composite (3 peaks) negative shift of about 6.0%0 and starts immediately at the base of bed 23 of the Broom Point Member. The 13Ccarb profile ties to conodont and graptolite zones and indicates that the lowest occurrence of planktic graptolites in Bed 25 largely coincides with the C. lindstromi s.l. conodont Zone i.e. below the Iapetognathus? conodont Zone.
