Facies and paleogeography of the marine Upper Permian and of the Permian-Triassic boundary in the Southern Alps (Bellerophon formation, Tesero Horizon)
SummaryThe marine Upper Permian and the Permian-Triassic boundary of the Southern Alps between Val Adige (Southern Tyrol, northern Italy) and the Karawanken Mountains (northern Yugoslavia) were
From sediment to rock: diagenetic processes of hardground formation in deep-water carbonate mounds of the NE Atlantic
Modern cool-water carbonate mounds topped by corals form an extended reef belt along the NW European continental margin at 200–1200 m water depth. An essential element of mound growth are hardgrounds
Skeletal morphogenesis and growth mode of modern and fossil deep-water isidid gorgonians (Octocorallia) in the West Pacific (New Zealand and Sea of Okhotsk)
Fabric and growth mode of deep-water isidid gorgonian skeletons showing bright Mg-calcitic internodes and dark proteinageous nodes were investigated on modern, subrecent and fossil skeletons. The
Carbonate platforms as recorders of high‐amplitude eustatic sea‐level fluctuations: the late Albian appenninica‐event
The mid-Cretaceous was a time in which rapid vertical carbonate accumulation alternated with intervals of world-wide crisis on carbonate platforms. Next to the well-known mid-Valanginian, mid-Aptian
Varying growth rates in bamboo corals: sclerochronology and radiocarbon dating of a mid-Holocene deep-water gorgonian skeleton (Keratoisis sp.: Octocorallia) from Chatham Rise (New Zealand)
A branched mid-Holocene bamboo coral skeleton of the isidid gorgonian genus Keratoisis (Octocorallia) recovered at southwestern Chatham Rise (New Zealand) from an average water depth of 680 m is
Microstructure, growth banding and age determination of a primnoid gorgonian skeleton (Octocorallia) from the late Younger Dryas to earliest Holocene of the Bay of Biscay
A fossil primnoid gorgonian skeleton (Octocorallia) was recovered on the eastern Galician Massif in the Bay of Biscay (NE Atlantic) from 720 m water depth. The skeleton shows a growth banding of
