AbstractSeep carbonates represent excellent archives of seepage activities near seafloors. In order to provide insights on sources of seeping fluids, stable carbon and oxygen isotopes and Sr-87/Sr-86 ratios were applied to seep carbonates from Shenhu, SW Dongsha, and NE Dongsha on the northern continental slope of the South China Sea. U/Th dating was selected to constrain the time involved in carbonate formation and the potential driving force. The delta C-13 values of the Shenhu and NE Dongsha carbonates vary from -52.3 parts per thousand to -32.6 parts per thousand (V-PDB), indicating that biogenic methane is the primary carbon source at both locations. The delta C-13 values of the SW Dongsha carbonates are much higher, ranging from -18.8 parts per thousand to -11.parts per thousand (V-PDB), suggesting that thermogenic methane is the predominant carbon source in this region. A relatively deep origin of thermogenic methane for the SW Dongsha seeps is also supported by somewhat lower Sr-87/Sr-86 ratios of the samples (from 0.709025 to 0.709097). The delta O-18 values of the Shenhu and NE Dongsha carbonates vary from 1.4%. to 5.1%. (V-PDB), while the delta O-18 values of the SW Dongsha carbonates range from 2.5%. to 3.4%. (V-PDB). Many samples from Shenhu and NE Dongsha demonstrate an O-18-enriched fluid source that most likely originated from waters released from the dissociation of locally abundant gas hydrate. U/Th ages of the Shenhu carbonates show a large range from 330 ka to 152 ka BP and the NE Dongsha carbonates have ages from 77 ka to 63 ka BP. Interestingly, U/Th ages of most samples are either within times of sea-level lowstands or correspond to periods when the sea-level was falling. Taken together, our data suggest that in the South China Sea gas hydrate dissociation during sea-level lowstands or falling stages resulted from reduced hydrastastic pressures, which in turn enhanced the seep activities and promoted the formation of authigenic carbonates close to the seafloor.
