Ammonites from Mt Kobla ( Julian Alps , NW Slovenia ) and their significance for precise dating of Pliensbachian tectono-sedimentary event

  author={B. Ro{\vz}i{\vc} and F. Venturi and A. {\vS}muc},
Although ammonites serve as index fossils in the Jurassic, their discovery in the area of present-day Slovenia are rare, with only three locations having been studied in greater detail. Here we presented ammonites from a newly discovered site at Mt Kobla on the eastern Bohinj Range. The site is located at the very top of the Kobla skiing ground, where 250 m of Lower Jurassic limestone of the Julian Carbonate Platform crop out. The succession begins with peloidal/ooidal limestone which upwards… Expand

Stratigraphic correlation and structural position of Lower Cretaceous flysch-type deposits in the eastern Southern Alps (NW Slovenia)
Lower Cretaceous syn-orogenic sediments derived from the obducted ophiolites of the Meliata–Maliac–Vardar (Neotethys) Ocean are typically found in the Dinarides and the Austroalpine units.Expand
Middle Jurassic limestone megabreccia from the southern margin of the Slovenian Basin
The Slovenian Basin is a Mesozoic deep-water paleogeographic unit, located along the border between the eastern Southern Alps and the Dinarides, that records geodynamic signals from the opening ofExpand
Sedimentary record of subsidence pulse at the Triassic/Jurassic boundary interval in the Slovenian Basin (eastern Southern Alps)
Abstract In the Alpine Realm the Early Jurassic is characterized by the disintegration and partial drowning of vast platform areas. In the eastern part of the Southern Alps (present-day NW Slovenia),Expand


A complete Jurassic succession, recording the evolution from platform margin to a deep-water basin, is exposed at Mt. Mangart in the Julian Alps. The succession is a part of the Julian Nappe, whereExpand
Lower Cretaceous carbonate gravity-flow deposits from the Bohinj area (NW Slovenia): : evidence of a lost carbonate platform in the Internal Dinarides
In the Bohinj area (NW Slovenia), a distinctive interval of carbonate gravity-flow deposits overlying the pelagic Biancone limestone was analyzed for microfacies and dated with radiolarians. ThisExpand
The Jurassic Prehodavci Formation of the Julian Alps: easternmost outcrops of Rosso Ammonitico in the Southern Alps (NW Slovenia)
The Julian Alps are located in NW Slovenia and structurally belong to the Julian Nappe where the Southern Alps intersect with the Dinarides. In the Jurassic, the area was a part of the southernExpand
The Rosso Ammonitico Veronese (Middle-Upper Jurassic of the Trento Plateau); a proposal of lithostratigraphic ordering and formalization
We here propose a revision of the stratigraphic interval comprised between the top of platform carbonates, mainly of Early Jurassic age, and the base of the Maiolica, in the Trento Plateau. Most ofExpand
Perbla and Tolmin formations: revised Toarcian to Tithonian stratigraphy of the Tolmin Basin (NW Slovenia) and regional correlations
The succession of the Tolmin Basin forms the foothills of the Julian Alps in northwestern Slovenia. In the Jurassic, it was part of the southern Tethyan passive continental margin. The basin wasExpand
Toarcian Radiolaria from Mt. Mangart (Slovenian–Italian border) and their paleoecological implications
Abstract Diverse and well-preserved Toarcian radiolarians have been recovered from a succession of organic-rich shale with intercalations of siliceous limestone. The succession is located at theExpand
Extent of the Upper Norian – Rhaetian Slatnik Formation in the Tolmin Nappe, eastern Southern Alps
In the Norian and Rhaetian the area of present-day Slovenia was divided into the Julian Carbonate Platform on in present north, the Dinaric Carbonate Platform in the present south and theExpand
Jurassic mountain building and Mesozoic-Cenozoic geodynamic evolution of the Northern Calcareous Alps as proven in the Berchtesgaden Alps (Germany)
New data from the Berchtesgaden Alps result in a reconstruction of the Mesozoic-Cenozoic geodynamic history of the Northern Calcareous Alps. The closure of the western part of the Neotethys OceanExpand
New paleontological evidence of the Carnian strata in the Mežica area (Karavanke Mts, Slovenia): Conodont data for the Carnian Pluvial Event
Abstract The Carnian carbonate succession in the Mežica area called “Raibl Beds” (Karavanke Mts, Slovenia) on the north of the Periadriatic Line in the Eastern Alps includes three clastic horizons ofExpand
Birth and early evolution of a Jurassic escarpment: Monte Kumeta Western Sicily
SummaryThe accurate reconstruction of the facies architecture in the Jurassic succession of Monte Kumeta, coupled with a detailed biostratigraphy, allow to define dynamics and genetic factorsExpand
