Rare earth element (REE) in seep carbonates collected from modern cold seeps of Gulf of Mexico, Black Sea, Congo Fan, ancient seeps of Beauvoisin (Oxfordian, J3, Southeastern France) and Marmorito (Miocene, Northern Italy) were studied. Our focus has been on 5% HNO3-treated solution (authigenic carbonate minerals) of carbonates. Several crystalline forms of carbonate minerals have been selected for analysis. Total REE (∑REE) contents in seep carbonates varies widely, from 0.068 to 43.655 ppm, but the common trend is that the ∑REE in microcrystalline phases is highest and lowest of in sparite, suggesting that the ∑REE of seep carbonates may be a function of diagenesis. The shale-normalized REE patterns of the seep carbonates show varied Ce anomalies across several seep sites and even within one site, suggesting that the formation condition of seep carbonate is variable and complex. Overall, our results show that apart from anoxic, oxic formation condition is also common at hydrocarbon seep environments.

Carbonate precipitation at cold seep sites is a result of microbial oxidation of methane, as well as higher Proceedings of the 6th International Conference on Gas Hydrates (ICGH 2008), Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA, July 6-10, 2008.  molecular weight hydrocarbons, through the combined metabolism of methane oxidizing archaea (MOA) and sulfate reducing bacteria (SRB) [4-6]. Seafloor observations of cold seep sites show that the chemical and physical characters of cold seep sites are complex and variable [7] and [8]. However, it is difficult to trace this dynamic characterization, especially the variation of redox condition induced by bacterial processes at modern and ancient cold seeps. The Ce anomaly of authigenic sediment deposited at the seafloor is an effective indicator of the sedimentary redox variation [9-11]. Here we report rare earth element (REE) in 5% HNO3-treated solution (authigenic carbonate mineral) of seep carbonates collected from modern seeps of Congo Fan, Black Sea, Gulf of Mexico, ancient seep from Beauvoisin (Oxfordian, J3, Southeastern France) and Marmorito (Miocene, Northern Italy). Our aim has been to trace the variation in redox conditions during seep carbonate precipitation.   MATERIALS AND METHODS Seep carbonates analyzed in this paper were recovered from three modern seep areas: Bush Hill (540 m water depth) and Alaminos Canyon (2200 m water depth) of Gulf of Mexico, Romania shelf (120 m water depth) and Ukraine slope (190 m water depth) of Black Sea, Hydrate Hole (3113 m water depth) and Diapir Field (2417 m water depth) of Congo Fan, two ancient seeps of Beauvoisin (Oxfordian, J3, Southeastern France) and Marmorito (Miocene, Northern Italy) (Table 1). The 0.1 to 0.5 g sample powder was treated with 50 ml of 5% HNO3 in a centrifuge tube for 2-3 hours to separate the carbonate mineral phase and residue phase. Then, 2500 ng of Rhodium was added as an internal standard for calculating the element concentration of dissolved carbonate mineral phase. Five milliliters of this solution was further diluted 10 times to be used for the REE analysis using Finnigan MAT ELEMENT high resolution ICP-MS. Precision of the REE analysis was checked by multiple analyses of standard samples. The average standard deviations are less than 10%, and average relative standard deviations are better than 5%. For detail of the analyses see Qi et al. [15].  In this paper, Ce/Ce* denotes 3CeN/(2LaN+NdN), where N refers to normalization of concentration against the standard Post Archean Australian Shale (PAAS) [9]. Ceanom denotes Log(Ce/Ce*), Ceanom >-0.1 is positive anomaly, which means anoxic formation condition, while  Ceanom <-0.1 is negative anomaly, which means oxic formation condition [10].  RESULTS AND DISCUSSION Seep carbonate of Gulf of Mexico Bush Hill seep carbonates: The total REE content (∑REE) is 7.070~26.565 ppm for microcrystalline and 0.402~3.096 ppm for sparite. The ∑REE in microcrystalline is higher than that of in sparite for the same sample (Table 2). The shale-normalized REE patterns show varied Ce anomalies, from negative (Ceanom=-0.615~-0.100) to positive (Ceanom= -0.062~-0.006) (Table 2 and Figure 1) between different samples and even in one sample (BH-A).  The varied Ce anomalies between samples and even in the different carbonate phases of the same sample (microcrystalline and sparite, e.g. BH-A) strongly indicated the spatial and temporal change of the precipitation conditions of seep carbonate [12]. We suggest that the rate of fluid flow at Bush Hill seep site may be the primary factor that controls redox variations in seep environment. During conditions of relatively slow seepage, the carbonate precipitation occurs deep below the water/sediment interface, where the formation conditions are anoxic, yielding carbonates with positive Ce anomalies. On the other hand, higher seepage rates cause methane to be transported into the shallow sediments or even in the water, where conditions are relatively oxic, and the carbonates show negative Ce anomalies.  Alaminos Canyon seep carbonates: The ∑REE is 12.725 ppm for microcrystalline and 2.227 ppm for sparite. Similar to seep carbonate at Bush Hill, the ∑REE in microcrystalline is higher than that of in sparite (Table 2). The shale-normalized REE patterns show distinct negative Ce anomalies (Ceanom=-0.349~-0.294) (Table 2 and Figure 1), indicating that the seep carbonates formed under oxic conditions, which may be related to the dynamic characterization of the cold seeps [13].    Seep carbonate of Black Sea Romania shelf seep carbonates: The ∑REE of seep carbonates is very low, 2.026 ppm for microcrystalline, 0.896 ppm for microspar and 0.552 ppm for sparite (Table 2). The shale-normalized REE patterns show negative Ce anomalies (Ceanom=-0.218~-0.100) (Table 2 and Figure 1), indicates that the Romania shelf seep carbonates formed under oxic conditions. Ukraine slope seep carbonates: Similar to the Romania shelf seep carbonates, the ∑REE of Ukraine slope seep carbonates is very low, 2.817 ppm for microcrystalline, 0.695 ppm for microspar and 0.068 ppm for sparite (Table 2). But, unlike to the Romania shelf seep carbonates, the shale-normalized REE patterns of Ukraine slope seep carbonates show positive Ce anomalies (Ceanom=-0.053~0.014 (Table 2 and Figure 1), indicates that the Ukraine slope seep carbonates formed under anoxic conditions.  It is suggested from the REE patterns that Romania shelf and Ukraine slope seep carbonates formed under oxic and anoxic conditions, respectively. Which is consistent with the obvious oxygen value (11 mol/L) in the bottom water of Romania shelf, and no oxygen was detected in bottom water of Ukraine slope [3]. Thus, there should be an oxic–anoxic interface between the depth from Romania shelf to Ukraine slope during the formation of those seep carbonates.  Seep carbonate of Congo Fan Hydrate Hole seep carbonate: The ∑REE is 23.173~42.539 ppm for microcrystalline, 23.461~30.986 ppm for microspar and 1.59 ppm for sparite (Table 2). The shale-normalized REE patterns show distinct positive Ce anomalies (Ceanom=0.188~0.266) (Table 2 and Figure 1), indicates that the Hydrate Hole seep carbonates formed under anoxic conditions.  Diapir Field seep carbonate: The ∑REE is 41.636 ppm for microcrystalline (Table 2). Similar to Hydrate Hole, the shale-normalized REE pattern shows positive Ce anomalies (Ceanom=0.105) (Table 2 and Figure 1), indicates that the Diapir Field seep carbonates also formed under anoxic conditions. It is obvious that Hydrate Hole and Diapir Field seep carbonates formed under anoxic conditions. This is confirmed by the depleted δ13CPDB values from -60.2 to -48.2 of those seep carbonates, which clearly indicates that the carbon is derived from a methane source and carbonate precipitation was due to anaerobic methane oxidation (Table 1), further evidence is also from biomarker analyses [14].  Seep carbonate of Marmorito The ∑REE of seep carbonates is 5.220~43.655 ppm for microcrystalline, 3.220~7.177 ppm for microspar, 0.992~1.031 ppm for sparite, and 2.416 ppm for blocky cement. The shale-normalized REE patterns show varied Ce anomalies, from negative (Ceanom=-0.435~-0.134) to positive (Ceanom=-0.099~-0.029) Ce anomalies (Table 2 and Figure 1) between different samples. The varied Ce anomalies between samples indicates that the spatial or/and temporal change of the precipitation conditions of Marmorito seep carbonates. Remarkably, apart from lipid biomarkers of MOA and SRB, biomarkers of aerobic methanotrophic bacteria have been found in this rock [2] and [16]. Seep carbonate of Beauvoisin The ∑REE is 11.430~21.005 ppm for microcrystalline, 16.847~24.773 ppm dolomite, and 3.32 ppm for sparite (Table 2). The shale-normalized REE patterns show distinct positive Ce anomalies (Ceanom=-0.066~0.037) (Table 2 and Figure 1), indicates that the Beauvoisin seep carbonates formed under anoxic conditions.  SUMMARY The ∑REE of carbonates from modern seeps of Gulf of Mexico, Black Sea, Congo Fan, ancient seeps from Beauvoisin (Oxfordian, J3, Southeastern France) and Marmorito (Miocene, Northern Italy) has a wide range, from 0.068 to 43.655 ppm, but usually less than 10 ppm. The common trend is that the ∑REE in microcrystalline phases is higher than in sparite, suggesting that the REE content of seep carbonate may be a function of diagenesis. The shale-normalized REE patterns of the seep carbonates show varied Ce anomalies, indicating the different formation conditions. Congo Fan and Beauvoisin seep carbonates formed under anoxic condition, Black Sea seep carbonates formed under oxic (120 m water depth) and anoxic (190 m water depth) condition, while Gulf of Mexico and Marmorito seep carbonates formed under both anoxic and oxic condition, suggesting that the formation condition of the seep carbonate is variable and complex.  Overall, our results show that apart from anoxic, oxic formation condition is also common in hydrocarbon seep environments. The carbonate precipitation under oxic condition may be related to a decrease of seepage rates. When the seep rate decreases, the interface of oxic and anoxic conditions migrates downwards, thus the HCO3- in former anoxic zone will continue to precipitate carbonate. Furthermore, the intermittent variation of the seepage rate may also result in the carbonate precipitation under aerobic conditions.
