Abstract

Organic petrographical investigations of Norwegian Sea sediments deposited during oxygen istope stages 6 and 5 show significant changes in the relative amounts of "reactive" (vitrinite and liptinite) and "inert" (inertinite and graphite) particles. The [delta]13C values of the total organic fraction possibly reflect the variable content of reactives, i.e. the isotopic composition is more negative (to -23.9[per mille sign]) when the reactive components increase. The n-alkane distribution shows that the soluble organic matter deposited during late stage 6 and 5e reveals relatively low odd-even-predominance indices (OEP) associated with shorter chain lengths. This indicates a relatively higher marine algal contribution during stage 6 and 5e compared with stage 5d to 5a.
