Understanding how nutrients behave during sub-oxic environments is crucial in predicting future changes in the ocean-climate system. This study focuses on the role of phosphorus, in its different sedimentary reservoirs, during the Cenomanian-Turonian anoxic event (OAE 2), which occurred during the late Cretaceous (~93.5 Ma). In the geological record this period in the Earth’s history is...
