Title: Carbon isotopes in shallow epicontinental seas: lessons from the Late Ordovician

Outline:

· Introduction to the paleoclimatic and chemostratigraphic applications of bulk carbonate carbon isotopic values

· Discuss how sea level fluctuations might influence carbon isotopic trends in shallow epicontinental seas: 1) global to regional changes in carbon cycling vs. 2) regional to local changes in environmental conditions due to proximity to shoreline.

· How do we distinguish between these end member processes: a sedimentology, sequence stratigraphic, and geochemical approach?

· Introduction to Late Ordovician chemostratigraphy

· Trends and patterns observed in Laurentia’s epicontinental sea and what they can tell us about the relationship between sea level and carbon isotopic trends

· Future exploration and testing in Mississippian carbonates of Montana
