Based on a well-established bio- and sequence-stratigraphic framework, a narrow time window in the Bimammatum ammonite zone (Late Oxfordian) is investigated in six Swiss Jura sections representing a shallow-water carbonate platform. From the detailed facies and microfacies analysis of oncoid-rich (Hauptmumienbank Member) and ooid-rich (Steinebach Member) limestones, a microfacies...
