Platform-induced clay-mineral fractionation along a northern Tethyan basin-platform transect: implications for the interpretation of Early Cretaceous climate change (Late Hauterivian-Early Aptian)

Godet, Alexis ; Bodin, Stéphane ; Adatte, Thierry ; Föllmi, Karl B.

In: Cretaceous Research, 2008, vol. 29, no. 5-6, p. 830-847

High-resolution clay-mineral analyses were performed on upper Hauterivian to lower Aptian sediments along a platform-to-basin transect through the northern Tethyan margin from the Neuchâtel area (Switzerland), to the Vocontian Trough (France) in order to investigate links between climate change, carbonate platform evolution, and fractionation patterns in clay minerals during their transport....

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

Bodin, Stéphane ; Godet, Alexis ; Matera, Virginie ; Steinmann, Philipp ; Vermeulen, Jean ; Gardin, Silvia ; Adatte, Thierry ; Coccioni, Rodolfo ; Föllmi, Karl B.

In: International Journal of Earth Sciences, 2007, vol. 96, no. 2, p. 327-341

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...

Interactions between environmental change and shallow water carbonate buildup along the northern Tethyan margin and their impact on the Early Cretaceous carbon isotope record

Föllmi, Karl B. ; Godet, Alexis ; Bodin, Stéphane ; Linder, Pascal

In: Paleoceanography, 2006, vol. 21, no. PA4211, p. 1-16

The evolution of the Early Cretaceous, northern Tethyan carbonate platform was not only influenced by changes in sea level, detrital influx, and surface water temperature but also by changes in trophic levels. We distinguish between phases of carbonate production dominated by oligotrophic photozoan communities and by mesotrophic and eventually colder-water heterozoan communities. Superimposed on...

Biostratigraphy, sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy of the latest Hauterivian – Early Barremian drowning episode of the Northern Tethyan margin (Altmann Member, Helvetic nappes, Switzerland)

Bodin, Stéphane ; Godet, Alexis ; Vermeulen, Jean ; Linder, Pascal ; Föllmi, Karl B.

In: Eclogae Geologicae Helvetiae, 2006, vol. 99, no. 2, p. 157-174

During the Early Cretaceous, major palaeoceanographic changes are mirrored on the northern Tethyan carbonate platform by changes in the carbonate factory and by platform drowning. The Altmann Member of the central European, northern Alpine Helvetic thrust and fold belt, contains the sedimentary record of one of these drowning events which occurred during the Late Hauterivian – Early Barremian....
