The general aim of the project is to evaluate the feasibility of using compound-specific isotope analysis (CSIA) to assess biodegradation of petroleum hydrocarbons in the unsaturated zone. The first objective was to quantify the isotope enrichment factors during biodegradation of several volatile organic compounds (VOCs) commonly found on petroleum hydrocarbon contaminated sites. These microcosm...

High-resolution stratigraphy of the Cenomanian–Turonian boundary interval at Pueblo (USA) and wadi Bahloul (Tunisia): stable isotope and bio-events correlation = Stratigraphie à haute résolution de la limite Cénomanien–Turonien sur les coupes de Pueblo (États-Unis) et de l'Oued Bahloul (Tunisie) : isotopes stables et corrélation des événements biologiques

A high-resolution stratigraphy has been developed for the interval encompassing the Cenomanian–Turonian boundary (CTBI), by means of several lithological, biological and geochemical events. This work entails the study of two sections selected on the base of the completeness of their sedimentary record and their contrasting paleogeographical setting: (1) The Rock Canyon Anticline section west of...
