Astronomical calibration of the Maastrichtian (Late Cretaceous)
Abstract Recent improvements to astronomical modeling of the Solar System have contributed to important refinements of the Cenozoic time scale through astronomical calibration of sedimentary series.Expand

Astronomical calibration of the Toarcian Stage: Implications for sequence stratigraphy and duration of the early Toarcian OAE
The Toarcian Oceanic Anoxic Event (T-OAE) of the early Jurassic period involves one of the largest perturbations of the carbon cycle in the past 250 Ma, recorded by a pronounced negativeExpand

Main Deccan volcanism phase ends near the K-T boundary: Evidence from the Krishna-Godavari Basin, SE India
Abstract Recent studies indicate that the bulk (80%) of the Deccan trap eruptions occurred over less than 0.8 m.y. in magnetic polarity C29r spanning the Cretaceous–Tertiary (K–T) boundary.Expand

Astronomical calibration of upper Campanian–Maastrichtian carbon isotope events and calcareous plankton biostratigraphy in the Indian Ocean (ODP Hole 762C): Implication for the age of the
Abstract An integrated framework of magnetostratigraphy, calcareous microfossil bio-events, cyclostratigraphy and δ13C stratigraphy is established for the upper Campanian–Maastrichtian of ODP HoleExpand

Geologic evolution and geodynamic controls of the Tertiary intramontane piggyback Meso-Hellenic basin, Greece
The Meso-Hellenic Basin (MHB) is a large, narrow and elongated basin containing up to c. 5 km of Cenozoic sediments, which partially covers the tectonic boundary between the external, western zonesExpand

Bio-magnetochronology for the upper Campanian – Maastrichtian from the Gubbio area, Italy: new results from the Contessa Highway and Bottaccione sections
A new bio-chronostratigraphic framework is presented for the upper Campanian – Maastrichtian pelagic sediments of the Gubbio area (Bottaccione and Contessa Highway sections, Italy). New planktonicExpand

Maastrichtian calcareous nannofossil biostratigraphy and paleoecology in the Equatorial Atlantic (Demerara Rise, ODP Leg 207 Hole 1258A)
Abstract Species richness, absolute and relative abundances of Maastrichtian calcareous nannofossils were analyzed in Hole 1258A. Absolute abundances of taxa were used for the biozonation of thisExpand

Late Maastrichtian to early Danian calcareous nannofossils at Elles (Northwest Tunisia). A tale of one million years across the K–T boundary
A detailed study of calcareous nannofossils of the Elles section (Tunisia) was extended over an interval of about 1 Myr including the K–T boundary. The late Maastrichtian assemblages are rich andExpand

Fertilization of the northwestern Tethys (Vocontian basin, SE France) during the Valanginian carbon isotope perturbation: Evidence from calcareous nannofossils and trace element data
A high resolution calcareous nannofossil study associated with a geochemical analysis (major, trace elements, and carbon and oxygen isotope stratigraphies) was carried out in the Angles sectionExpand
