Abstract A wide range of various proxies (e.g., mineralogy, organic carbon, inorganic geochemistry, C and Mo isotopes, and framboidal pyrite) were applied for interpretation of changing oceanic redox conditions, bioproductivity, and the regional history of volcanic activity. This resulted in internally consistent interpretation of the late Famennian Hangenberg Crisis in subtropical deepest water sites of the epeiric Rhenohercynian and Saxo–Thuringian basins, as well as more open sites of the Pal...

Abstract Although the prime causation of the Late Devonian Frasnian–Famennian (F–F) mass extinction remains conjectural, such destructive factors as the spread of anoxia and rapid upheavals in the runaway greenhouse climate are generally accepted in the Earth-bound multicausal scenario. In terms of prime triggers of these global changes, volcanism paroxysm coupled with the Eovariscan tectonism has been suspected for many years. However, the recent discovery of multiple anomalous mercury enrichme...

The end-Devonian global Hangenberg event (359 Ma) is among the most devastating mass extinction events in Earth’s history, albeit not one of the “Big Five”. This extinction is linked to worldwide anoxia caused by global climatic changes. These changes could have been driven by astronomical forcing and volcanic cataclysm, but ultimate causes of the extinction still remain unclear. Here we report anomalously high mercury (Hg) concentration in marine deposits encompassing the Hangenberg event from ...

In the Carnic Alps there are four sections exposing rocks across the Devonian–Carboniferous boundary: the Grune Schneid and the Kronhofgraben sections in Austria, the Plan di Zermula A and the Sentiero per Cresta Verde sections in Italy. All of them are mainly composed of limestone and span from the late Famennian through the Tournaisian. In the Kronhofgraben and Plan di Zermula A sections, the limestone sedimentation is interrupted by black shales interpreted as equivalent of the Hangenberg Bla...

In Sardinia (Italy) two sections, located in the southeastern part of the island, expose the Devonian/Carboniferous Boundary: the Monte Taccu Section and the Bruncu Bullai section. Both expose limestones from the middle Famennian to the lower Tournaisian Siphonodella jii Zone. The limestone sequence is interrupted by a thin level of shales representing the Hangenberg Event. Data on conodont biostratigraphy and magnetic susceptibility across the Devonian/Carboniferous Boundary are here summarised...

Abstract Coupled Mo-U isotope data from the Upper Devonian Kettle Point Formation (Ontario, Canada) provide a cautionary tale regarding interpretation of global ocean redox conditions using data from euxinic black shales. In the Gore of Chatham core, the Kettle Point black shales have high Mo concentrations (48–473 μg/g) and consistently high Mo/U ratios (≥3 times the Mo/U ratio of modern seawater), suggesting a euxinic depositional environment. These shales yield an inverse correlation (r = 0.8...

Abstract For the first time, Late Devonian palynofacies analyses of the Lower Sappington shale units U1A─D was carried out at Peak 9559 (Sacajawea) and Ainger Lake in the Bridger Range of Montana. Diagnostic spore species Apiculiretusispora verrucosa, Diducites mucronatus and D. versabilis allowed the correlation of our U1A-D with the European Late Famennian A. verrucosa-V. hystricosus Palynozone. The first appearance of Gorgonisphaeridium winslowiae in U1 is the oldest record before the incepti...

The lowermost Famennian deposits of the Kowala quarry (Holy Cross Mountains, Poland) are becoming famous for their rich fossil content such as their abundant phosphatized arthropod remains (mostly thylacocephalans). Here, for the first time, palaeontological and geochemical data were integrated to document abundance and diversity patterns in the context of palaeoenvironmental changes. During deposition, the generally oxic to suboxic conditions were interrupted at least twice by the onset of phot...

Abstract The Lali section (Guangxi Province, South China) is composed of quiet-water carbonates containing abundant conodonts, which allowed recognition of 12 Frasnian and 20 Famennian biozones. The Kellwasser and annulata events are characterized by transgressive black carbonates, while the Hangenberg Event is represented by black shale deposits. Other transgressive events recognized at Lali include the Middlesex, Nehden, Enkeberg, and Dasberg, as well as the Strunian transgression. Four regres...
