The organic-rich black shales in the Akdogan section (Antalya Nappes, SW Turkey) are the first reported evidence of the global Cenomanian-Turonian Oceanic Anoxic Event (OAE2) in the "Isparta Angle" region. Their age and organic geochemical characteristics are similar to those of other OAE2 intervals in the Pamphylian basin and neighbouring basins of the Tethyan realm. A short description of the whole Akdogan sequence allows us to compare it with other similar sequences in the surrounding areas and to discuss the local versus global controlling factors on the record of OAE in the Pamphylian basin.
