Decoding tufa and travertine (fresh water carbonates) in the sedimentary record: The state of the art
Traditionally, fresh water carbonate research has focused on the sedimentology and palaeontology of ancient lacustrine deposits. Lithofacies in such low-energy deposits are typically fine-grained,Expand
Travertine: Distinctive depositional fabrics of carbonates from thermal spring systems
The terrestrial limestones forming at the emergence of thermal springs show a variety of unusual depositional facies. The specific lithological and petrological features of these deposits have fewExpand
Distribution of the archaeocyath-calcimicrobial bioconstructions on the Early Cambrian shelves
Abstract The differences and variety of structural, depositional, and compositional features observed in the Early Cambrian microbial-archaeocyath buildups preserved in the present-day continents,Expand
Early Cambrian bioconstructions in the Zavkhan Basin of western Mongolia
The Neoproterozoic–Cambrian succession in the Zavkhan Basin of western Mongolia preserves early Cambrian bioconstructions of Nemakit-Daldynian to Botomian age. As elsewhere (Siberia, Morocco), theExpand
The oldest tabulate coral and the associated archaeocyatha, Lower Cambrian, Flinders Ranges, South Australia
Abstract The oldest known tabulate, Flindersipora bowmani Lafuste gen. et sp. nov. from the Flinders Ranges of South Australia, is described for the first time. The new genus presents allExpand
Palaeogeographic and geodynamic evolution of the Gondwana continental margins during the Cambrian
SUMMARY During the Cambrian, two types of continental margins occurred around Gondwana. The eastern margin (Antarctica, Australia and southern South America) was characterized by a narrowExpand
The Mesozoic continental rifting in the Mediterranean area: insights from the Verrucano tectofacies of southern Tuscany (Northern Apennines, Italy)
In the Alpine-Mediterranean region, the continental redbeds and shallow-marine siliciclastics related to the early depositional phases of the Late Permian-Mesozoic continental rifting are referred toExpand
