Summary:Carbon isotope ratios of graphites were studied in carbonate-free metasediments from these two areas. The stable C isotopic compositions of the graphites are in the range of approx -22 to - 12 per mille and show systematic regional distribution patterns. Variations in delta13C are explained as mixing of normal marine and detrital carbonaceous components. The latter is similar to the carbonaceous matter in black pebbles of conglomerate bodies that occur in the same sedimentary sequence. Based on the delta13C values a distinction can be made between sediments deposited in the far S part of the Penninic ocean basin and those deposited more to the N. The results are used for possible sedimentary facies correlations between rocks in the Alpine Penninic windows. [R.E.S.]
