A few data points showed apparent positive Ce anomaly caused by a negative La anomaly (as defined by Bau & Dulski 1996), and one data point from the Nostolepis body scale showed a real positive Ce anomaly, likely reflecting pore water anoxia present in most of the depositional settings.

However, evidence for benthic colonization events at certain horizons within these shales [40-42] and for high-energy events in the water column and benthic zone [43] has led to a considerable debate about whether the water column was anoxic at all and, if so, on whether anoxia was ever persistent.

As a general guideline for the data presented here, the value [less than or equal to] 350mV at pH 7 has been used to indicate the redox potential at and below which anoxia commences (Marschner 1986; sec also Discussion).
Assuming that their explanation of anoxia was the cause of their high larval mortality, we avoided water changes by allowing evaporation and replacing the lost volume with feedings of plankton water.

In those sediments are records of past events in which methane gas rapidly entered the Santa Barbara Basin, even driving it to the point of anoxia, where no oxygen remains in the water, and probably creating a giant "dead zone" for marine life.
