Cyclostratigraphic timing of sedimentary processes: an example from the Berriasian of the Swiss and French Jura Mountains

Strasser, André ; Hillgärtner, Heiko ; Pasquier, Jean-Bruno

In: SEPM Special Publication, 2004, vol. No. 81, p. 135

The Berriasian Pierre-Châtel Formation in the Swiss and French Jura Mountains is dominated by shallow-marine carbonates that overlie lacustrine and marginal-marine sediments with a major transgressive surface. Detailed facies analysis of five sections allows the definition of elementary and small-scale depositional sequences, which commonly exhibit deepening–shallowing trends. Benthic...

Third-order depositional sequences reflecting Milankovitch cyclicity

Strasser, André ; Hillgärtner, Heiko ; Hug, Wolfgang ; Pittet, Bernard

In: Terra Nova, 2000, vol. 12(6), p. 303

The origin of third-order depositional sequences remains debatable, and in many cases it is not clear whether they were controlled by tectonic activity and/or by eustatic sea-level changes. In Oxfordian and Berriasian-Valanginian carbonate-dominated sections of Switzerland, France, Germany and Spain, high-resolution sequence-stratigraphic and cyclostratigraphic analyses show that the sedimentary...

Quantification of high-frequency sea-level fluctuations in shallow-water carbonates: an example from the Berriasian–Valanginian (French Jura)

Hillgärtner, Heiko ; Strasser, André

When quantifying sedimentary processes on shallow carbonate platforms, it is important to know the high-frequency accommodation changes through time. Accommodation changes in cyclic successions are often analysed by simply converting cycle thickness to Fischer plots. This approach is not satisfactory, because it does not account for differential compaction, possible erosion, sea-level fall below...
