The mid‐Cretaceous was a period of unusually active tectonism that drove enhanced volcanic outgassing and high seafloor spreading rates. This intense tectonic activity is coincident with dramatic events in the marine environment, including oceanic anoxic events 1 (Aptian‐Early Albian) and 2 (Cenomanian/Turonian boundary), high biological turnover rates, and a thermal by: Geochemical evolution of the Louisville Seamounts; Relation between Louisville hotspot and the Ontong Java Plateau; Paleoceanography and paleoclimate at high southern paleolatitudes; Geomicrobiology and fossil microbial traces; Operations; Port call; On-site operations; References; Tables; T1.

This research volume takes an integrated systems approach to understanding the Cretaceous period, when a significant greenhouse episode occurred in the ancient world.

Highlighting important events and processes, the articles reveal a view of the Cretaceous as a dynamic ocean-climate system with numerous variations. This book brings together a number of review papers that describe ancient oceans and unique events in the Earth's climatic history and evolution of biota.

The papers show evidence of periods characterised by exceptional global warmth such as Late Palaeocene Thermal Maximum and Cretaceous anoxic events.
