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.
