The chemical composition of chalk and marl reflects the mixture of carbonate particles and clastic input deposited on the seabed together with growth of authigenic minerals and diagenesis. The Rørdal quarry in Jylland (Fig. 1) is known for its alternating chalk–marl succession (Surlyk et al. 2010) and the aim of this article is to investigate how this cyclicity is reflected in the geochemical signature of the sequence and test if this has implications for the interpretation of the depositional environment as well as the chemostratigraphy in the chalk.
