    Early Toarcian (Early Jurassic; -183 Ma) climate and carbon cycle perturbations were accompanied by widespread accumulation of bituminous sediments, formed during the Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event (T-OAE). On the northwestern Tethyan shelf, organic carbon accumulation was particularly widespread in hydrodynamically restricted regions of the European Epicontinental Basin System (EEBS) where it peaked during the formation of euxinic waters extending into the photic zone. In the adjacent northeastern West Tethys shelf (NE-WTS), an area proximal to the deeper and better ventilated NW Tethys, deposition of strata enriched in organic matter was restricted to depressions of limited spatial extent. While numerous works have addressed the bituminous strata from the EEBS, evolution of environmental conditions and drivers of organic matter accumulation in areas proximal to the open Tethys have received much less attention.
