A collection of computer programs to generate time series based on de®ned stochastic processes is presented. The programs can be used to simulate and analyse stratigraphic successions. A program for the graphical representation of up to 10 time series makes this package self-contained. The programs are intended as an introduction to stratigraphic time(More)
Biotic recovery after the Cretaceous-Palaeogene (K-Pg) impact is one unsolved question concerning this mass extinction event. To evaluate the incidence of the K-Pg event on biota, and the subsequent recovery, a recent environmental disaster has been analysed. Areas affected by the contamination disaster of Aználcollar (province of Sevilla, southern Spain)(More)
The maximum entropy spectral estimator is widely used because of its high spectral resolution, but it lacks an easy procedure for evaluating the statistical significance of the spectral estimates. We implemented the non-parametric computer intensive permutation test in order to evaluate the statistical significance of the maximum entropy spectral estimates.(More)
An ultra-high-resolution analysis of major and trace element contents from the Cretaceous-Paleogene boundary interval in the Caravaca section, southeast Spain, reveals a quick recovery of depositional conditions after the impact event. Enrichment/depletion profiles of redox sensitive elements indicate significant geochemical anomalies just within the(More)
Many studies have revealed the cyclicity of past ocean/atmosphere dynamics at a wide range of time scales (from decadal to millennial time scales), based on the spectral analysis of time series of climate proxies obtained from deep sea sediment cores. Among the many techniques available for spectral analysis, the maximum entropy method and the Thomson(More)
Middle-Upper Oxfordian assemblages of foraminifera in the Prebetic Zone (Betic Cordillera, SE Spain) were analysed at the genus level to determine their composition, relative abundance, diversity, and dominance, as well as the size of the specimens. A relationship has been established between lithofacies, palaeogeography and composition of foraminiferal(More)
