Genèse des gisements d'asphalte des formations de la pierre jaune de Neuchâtel et des calcaires urgoniens du Jura (Jura neuchâtelois et nord vaudois, Suisse)

Zweidler, Daniel C. ; Remane, J. (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 1985 ; Th.1981.

In Switzerland, asphalt deposits and occurrences are prominent at the foothills and around the first synclines of the Jura Mountains in the cantons of Neuchâtel and Vaud. They are all closely associated with the Cretaceous, Hauterivian and Barremian, limestone formations. During most of the Hauterivian and Barremian, an important carbonate platform developed on the northern, passive margin of...

Enrichment of redox-sensitive trace metals (U, V, Mo, As) associated with the late Hauterivian Faraoni oceanic anoxic event

The Faraoni Level is a short-lived oxygen-deficient event that took place during the latest Hauterivian. In order to improve our understanding of the palaeoenvironmental conditions that occurred during this event, we have analysed the contents of several redox-sensitive trace elements (U, V, Mo, As, Co, Cd, Cu, Zn, Ni, Pb, Cr) from bulk limestone samples of late Hauterivian–early Barremian age...

The evolution of the Urgonian platform in the Western Swiss Jura realm and its interactions with palaeoclimatic and palaeoceanographic change along the Northern Tethyan Margin (Hauterivian – earliest Aptian)

Godet, Alexis ; Föllmi, Karl (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2006 ; 1904.

During more than twenty years, a controversy appeared about the age of the Urgonian formation (lower Urgonien Jaune and upper Urgonien Blanc) from the Western Swiss Jura. Depending on previous works, these formations are considered to be Late Hauterivian or Late Barremian in age. This divergence mainly results from different calibration of orbitolinids distribution, as well as divergent sequence...

Palaeoceanographic and palaeoclimatic changes during the Late Hauterivian-Barremian and their impact on the northern Tethyan margin : a combined sedimentological and geochemical approach

Bodin, Stéphane ; Föllmi, Karl (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2006 ; 1901.

The goal of this PhD study was to decipher the mechanisms responsible for changes in the carbonate platform factory accompanied by incipient drowning. For this purpose, a peculiar condensed level called the Altmann Member, which recorded the northern Tethyan margin drowning during the latest Hauterivian – Early Barremian, and which is now locked up in the Helvetic realm, was studied. Indeed,...

The late Hauterivian Faraoni oceanic anoxic event in the western Tethys: Evidence from phosphorus burial rates

Bodin, Stéphane ; Godet, Alexis ; Föllmi, Karl B. ; Vermeulen, Jean ; Arnaud, Hubert ; Strasser, André ; Fiet, Nicolas ; Adatte, Thierry

In: Palaeogeography, Palaeoclimatology, Palaeoecology, 2006, vol. 235, p. 245-264

In the uppermost Hauterivian sediments of the western Tethys, a short-lived anoxic event (Faraoni event) is documented both in the form of an interval enriched in organic matter (pelagic realm) and in a condensed interval enriched in glauconite and phosphate (shelf realm). This latter interval represents the onset of a drowning episode on the Helvetic carbonate platform along the northern tethyan...

Evolution of the marine stable carbon-isotope record during the early Cretaceous : A focus on the late Hauterivian and Barremian in the Tethyan realm

Godet, Alexis ; Bodin, Stéphane ; Föllmi, Karl B. ; Vermeulen, Jean ; Gardin, Silvia ; Fiet, Nicolas ; Adatte, Thierry ; Berner, Zsolt ; Stüben, Doris ; Van de Schootbrugge, Bas

In: Earth and Planetary Science Letters, 2006, vol. 242, p. 254-271

In order to improve our understanding of the relationships between the late Hauterivian oceanic anoxic Faraoni event, contemporaneous platform drowning along the northern Tethyan margin and global environmental change in general, we established high-resolution δ13C and δ18O curves for the late Hauterivian and the entire Barremian stage. These data were obtained from whole-rock carbonate samples...
