© 2018 Peking University. In order to study biostratigraphy and chemical stratigraphy during the Lower Kellwasser event, high resolution conodonts research and chemostratigraphic framework were carried out. The data reveals that the inorganic and organic carbon isotope have a significant positive excursion at the bottom of the Laye section. It is considered that the sample LY-8 is consistent with the Lower Kellwasser boundary. The main reason for the change of carbon isotope in this area is the increase of organic carbon burial, which is caused by the increase of marine primary productivity and anoxia environment possibly.
