태백산분지 백운산향사대의 남익부를 따라 약 30 m 두께로 노출되어 있는 오오도비스 중기의 직운산셰일층은 그동안 탄산염 대지환경에서 퇴적된 막골석회암층를 피복하는 해침상의 셰일층으로 단순히 해석되어져 왔다. 그러나 본 연구의 결과들은 직운산셰일층 대부분이 직운산셰일층 하부구간에 나타나는 유기물질이 풍부한(>3 wt.%) 흑회색 셰일로 구성된 약 240 cm 두께의 최대해침기 동안에 퇴적된 박층의 해성층 위를 피복하는 해퇴상의 셰일층으로 해석될 수 있음을 지시한다. 정밀 층서 분석과 병행하여 실시한 주성분원소 분석, 조성광물 분석, 미량원소 분석 및 총유기탄소와 무기탄소 분석은 직운산셰일층 하부구간에 나타나는 박층의 해성층을 고수위기 초기 동안에 밀도변환면이 확장됨에 따라 형성된 특징적인 무산소환경에서 퇴적된 응축층으로 규정하기를 허락한다. 아울러 직운산셰일층 하부구간 내에서 해침면, 최대해침면, 최소퇴적감소면, 해퇴개시면과 같은 시퀀스층서학적 또는 환경학적으로 의미가 있는 뚜렷한 특징의 층서면들이 인지되었다. 이러한 층서면들은 향후 태백산분지 내 오오도비스 중기 퇴적층들의 정교한 지역간 층서대비 및 구조운동에 따른 층서적 변이와 함께 분지발달사에 대한 종합적인 이해를 이끌어 내는데 매우 유용한 정보들을 제공해 줄 수 있다.
