      Ordovician-Silurian black shales are the source rocks in the Palaeozoic petroleum system in Iraq. However, their source and depositional conditions fr. Accurate correlation and subdivision of the Hunton require an understanding of the overall depositional environment and history. The depositional model for the Silurian Chimneyhill and Henryhouse formations and the Devonian Haragan and Bois d'Arc formations is a carbonate ramp. The Ordovician–Silurian extinction events, when combined, are the second-largest of the five major extinction events in Earth's history in terms of percentage of genera that became event greatly affected marine communities, which caused the disappearance of one third of all brachiopod and bryozoan families, furthermore numerous groups of conodonts, trilobites, and graptolites.   Shales of the Silurian Dadaş Formation exposed in the southeast Anatolia were investigated by organic geochemical methods. The TOC contents range from to wt% for the Hazro samples and to wt% for the Korudağ samples. Tmax values between and °C in the Hazro samples indicate thermal maturity; Tmax values ranging from to °C in the Korudağ .

      In the geological timescale, the Llandovery epoch (from ± million years ago to ± million years ago) occurred at the beginning of the Silurian period. The Llandoverian epoch follows the massive Ordovician-Silurian extinction events, which led to a large decrease in biodiversity and an opening up of ecosystems.. Widespread reef building started in this period and continued.

This fact permitted use of the British shelly fossil Series and Llandovery Stages and Llandovery through Ludlow graptolite Zones for correlation.

The number of units reflects the large area of China underlain by Silurian rocks, and the varied environmental regimes affecting their deposition. For correlation, both graptolites and brachiopods have been used most extensively, but other groups have contributed significantly from place to place.

Stratigraphy and correlation of these strata must be deciphered by the study of cuttings and rock cores from deep wells. Areas of surface rock (or covered by a small thickness of recent 'drift' deposits) dating from the Lower Paleozoic are shown with a brown color.

Silurian Period. Written By: Silurian Period, in geologic time, the third period of the Paleozoic Era. It began million years ago and ended million years ago, extending from the close of the Ordovician Period to the beginning of the Devonian Period. The mid-late Homerian Age of the Silurian Period was a time of intense changes in biota, oceanic chemistry, and sea level and is known as the lundgreni extinction (for the graptolite extinctions.

The Silurian (/ s ɪ ˈ lj ʊər. ən, s aɪ-/ sih-LYOOR-ee-ən, sy-) is a geologic period and system spanning million years from the end of the Ordovician Period, at million years ago (), to the beginning of the Devonian Period, Mya.

The Silurian is the shortest period of the Paleozoic with other geologic periods, the rock beds that define the period's start and end.
