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,...

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...
