Sediment production and accumulation on shallow carbonate platforms are controlled by allogenic, externally controlled processes (such as sea level, climate, and/or platform-wide subsidence patterns) as well as by autogenic factors that are inherent to the sedimentary system (such as lateral migration of sediment bodies). The challenge is to determine how and in which proportion these...

History of the Middle Berriasian transgression on the Jura carbonate platform : revealed by high-resolution sequence- and cyclostratigraphy (Switzerland and France)

Tresch, Jonas ; Strasser, André

In: International Journal of Earth Sciences, 2010, vol. 99, no. 1, p. 139-163

The Middle Berriasian deposits of the Jura platform in Switzerland and France have already been well studied in terms of high-resolution sequence stratigraphy and different orders of depositional sequences (large-, medium-, and small-scale) have been defined. The hierarchical stacking pattern of the sequences and the time span represented by the investigated interval imply that sea-level...

History of a Middle Berriasian transgression (Switzerland, France, and southern England)

Tresch, Jonas ; Strasser, Andreas (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2007 ; no 1550.

The aim of this study is to correlate and interpret transgressive deposits of three different depositional regions with high resolution: the marginal-marine carbonates of the Jura platform (France and Switzerland) and the Dorset region (UK). Additionally, a hemipelagic section of the Vocontian basin (France) has been integrated into the high-resolution correlation scheme. The Middle Berriasian...
