How cold were the Early Permian glacial tropics? Testing sea-surface temperature using the oxygen isotope composition of rigorously screened brachiopod shells
Abstract: Brachiopod carbonate from Early Permian brachiopod shells from low palaeolatitude north Iran and higher palaeolatitude Pakistan Karakorum were screened for diagenesis and analysed forExpand

THE GENERA GLYCYMERIS, AEQUIPECTEN AND ARCTICA , AND ASSOCIATED MOLLUSK FAUNA OF THE LOWER PLEISTOCENE ARDA RIVER SECTION (NORTHERN ITALY)
The Lower Pleistocene marine succession of the Arda River, cropping out at Castell'Arquato (Northern Italy), is well exposed, continue and richly fossiliferous. Itconsists of sandstones, siltstonesExpand

Bio- and lithostratigraphy of lower Pleistocene marine successions in western Emilia (Italy) and their implications for the first occurrence of Arctica islandica in the Mediterranean Sea
The Arda and Stirone marine successions (Italy) represent key sections for the early Pleistocene; they were deposited continuously within a frame of climate change, recording the Calabrian cooling asExpand
