Abstract. Today and in the geologic past, climate changes greatly affect and have affected Earth surface processes. While the climatic parameters today can be measured with high precision, they have

Sequence analysis, cyclostratigraphy and palynofacies of early Anisian carbonate ramp deposits, NW Bulgaria

A sequence- and cyclostratigraphic interpretation of early Anisian (Aegean) shallow-marine carbonate ramp deposits, exposed in outcrop sections west of Tserovo village, NW Bulgaria, is presented. The

Integrated bio- and cyclostratigraphy of Middle Triassic (Anisian) ramp deposits, NW Bulgaria

Abstract A cyclostratigraphic interpretation of peritidal to shallow-marine ramp deposits of the early Middle Triassic (Anisian) Opletnya Member exposed in outcrops along the Iskar River gorge, NW

Interplay of eustatic, tectonic and autogenic controls on a Late Devonian carbonate platform, northern Canning Basin, Australia

Frasnian reef complexes along the northern margin of the Canning Basin in northwestern Australia evolved during rifting of the Fitzroy Trough. Geological investigations of the Frasnian Hull platform,

Facies and depositional environments of the Upper Muschelkalk (Schinznach Formation, Middle Triassic) in northern Switzerland

Overall, the paucity of porous shoal facies has resulted in poor primary reservoir properties in the Upper Muschelkalk of Switzerland, which contains the southern-most deposits of the Central European Basin.

Rate and synchronicity of environmental changes on a shallow carbonate platform (Late Oxfordian, Swiss Jura Mountains)

Recent global change occurs within decades and leaves a significant imprint on shallow carbonate platforms. To what extent can rate and synchronicity of environmental changes in the past be evaluated

Hiatuses and condensation: an estimation of time lost on a shallow carbonate platform

On shallow carbonate platforms, the sedimentary record is highly fragmentary because low accommodation commonly leads to non‐deposition, erosion, reworking and condensation. Consequently, it is

Cyclostratigraphy concepts, definitions, and applications

Cyclostratigraphy is the subdiscipline of stratigraphy that deals with the identification, characterization, correlation, and interpretation of cyclic variations in the stratigraphic record and, in

Climatic and eustatic signals in a global compilation of shallow marine carbonate accumulation rates

Two of the most important factors that control the accumulation rate of material in carbonate platform environments on geological time scales are climate and eustasy. Accurately assessing the

Orbital frequencies in the carbonate sedimentary record: distorted by diagenesis?

The most important archive of Earth’s climate change through geologic history is the sedimentary rock record. Rhythmic sedimentary alternations are usually interpreted as a consequence of periodic

Distinguishing Milankovitch‐Driven Processes in the Rock Record from Stochasticity Using Computer‐Simulated Stratigraphy

Repetitive patterns of facies recurrence are frequently reported from the shallow‐water sedimentary rock record and are postulated to have been driven by orbital forcing on eustatic sea level.
