Carbon- and oxygen-isotope ratios are commonly used to correlate shallow- and deep-marine successions. Carbon- and oxygen-isotope analyses were performed on bulk-carbonate samples from two Kimmeridgian sections of the Swiss Jura platform in order to correlate them with biostratigraphically well-dated coeval sections in the adjacent basin. On the platform, a general decrease in δ¹³C and...

Facies, cycles, and controls on the evolution of a keep-up carbonate platform (Kimmeridgian, Swiss Jura)

Colombié, Claude ; Strasser, André

During the Late Jurassic, accelerated ocean-floor spreading and associated sea-level rise were responsible for a worldwide transgression, which reached its maximum in the Late Kimmeridgian. In many Western European basins, this major sea-level rise led to the formation of marly and condensed sections. In the Swiss Jura, however, a shallow carbonate platform kept growing and only subtle changes in...

Sédimentologie, stratigraphie séquentielle et cyclostratigraphie du Kimméridgien du Jura suisse et du Bassin vocontien (France) : relations plate-forme - bassin et facteurs déterminants

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2002 ; no 1380.

A detailed sedimentological, sequential and cyclostratigraphic interpretation of the Kimmeridgian in the Swiss Jura defines the principal factors which control the different stages in the development of a shallow-water carbonate platform. A comparative study in the Vocontian Basin reveals their impact on hemipelagic and pelagic sedimentation. The sedimentary facies of three platform sections –...
