Arroyo Lapa (Neuquen Basin, Argentina) The Neuquen Basin in Argentina provides the rare opportunity for studying lower Jurassic ocean anoxic and global carbon-cycle events outside the classical European realm and on the southern hemisphere. Combined chemical, biostratographic and sedimentological research by Shell Mudrock Observatory team-members in collaboration with our Argentinian colleagues aims at understanding the global extend of major disruptions in the early Jurassic global carbon–cycle and their global and regional implications for carbon sequestration, palaeo-climate and the palaeo-environment.
