Atmospheric carbon dioxide reconstruction and ocean acidification deduced from carbon isotope variations across the Triassic–Jurassic boundary in the Qiangtang Area, Tibetan Plateau

The end-Triassic mass extinction was one of the five most profound Phanerozoic extinction events. This event was accompanied by a series of significant environmental changes, of which the most notable is the emergence of warm climate and the world-wide disappearance of carbonate platform. C isotope is one of the main means of reconstructing palaeoenvironment, however, there are very
limited studies on Asia and Oceania in the East Tethys region. In China, continuous marine strata through the J/T boundary are widespread in the Qiangtang area of Tibet (Chen Lan et al., 2017), which provide us abundant
research materials to study the environmental geological evolution during the T–J transition in Asian and even eastern Tethys.
