Abstract The Julian Alps (western Slovenia) structurally belong to the eastern Southern Alps. The Upper Triassic succession mostly consists of shallow water platform carbonates of the Dolomia Principale-Dachstein Limestone system and a deep water succession of the Slovenian Basin outcropping in the southern foothills of the Julian Alps. In addition to the Slovenian Basin, a few other intraplatform basins were present, but they remain poorly researched and virtually ignored in the existing… Expand
Triassic deep-water sedimentation in the Bled Basin, eastern Julian Alps, Slovenia
The Bled Basin was a Middle Triassic–Early Cretaceous basin whose remnants are preserved in the eastern Southern Alps in western Slovenia. The early evolution of the basin is recorded in the UpperExpand
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
The start‐up of the Dolomia Principale/Hauptdolomit carbonate platform (Upper Triassic) in the eastern Southern Alps
Wide carbonate platform environments developed on the western passive margin of the Tethys during the Late Triassic, after a major climate change (Carnian Pluvial Episode) that produced a crisis ofExpand
Sedimentology and biostratigraphy of upper Triassic atoll-type carbonates from the Dalnegorsk area, Taukha terrane, far East Russia
Abstract Contrary to their Tethyan counterparts, and despite substantial research, Upper Triassic shallow-water limestone from the Panthalassa Ocean remain poorly known. Their understanding is yetExpand
Anisian Strelovec Formation in the Robanov kot, Savinja Alps (Northern Slovenia)
A detailed sedimentological features of the Slatinski plaz section with a transition from the deep-water Anisian (Illyrian) Strelovec Formation to the Ladinian shallow-water Contrin Formation haveExpand
Sedimentological and geomorphological characteristics of Quaternary deposits in the Planica-Tamar Valley in the Julian Alps (NW Slovenia)
ABSTRACT We present a geomorphological map on a scale of 1:15,000, with detailed sedimentological descriptions, and a general relative spatio-temporal depositional reconstruction of QuaternaryExpand
Rise of calcispheres during the Carnian Pluvial Episode (Late Triassic)
Abstract It has been argued that the beginning of significant pelagic calcification could have been linked to the Carnian Pluvial Episode (CPE), a climate change in the Late Triassic (~234–232 Ma)Expand
δ18O, δ13C, trace elements and REE in situ measurements coupled with U–Pb ages to reconstruct the diagenesis of upper triassic atoll-type carbonates from the Panthalassa Ocean
Abstract Owing to their isolated oceanic setting, atoll-type carbonates are well suited for documenting carbonate deposition and diagenesis in oceanic environments away from continental influence.Expand


Late Triassic sedimentary evolution of Slovenian Basin (eastern Southern Alps): description and correlation of the Slatnik Formation
Successions of the Slovenian Basin structurally belong to the easternmost Southern Alps. During the Late Triassic, they were part of the Adriatic continental margin. Norian–Rhaetian successions ofExpand
Anatomy of an Upper Triassic continental to marginal-marine system: the mixed siliciclastic-carbonate Travenanzes Formation (Dolomites, Northern Italy)
The Travenanzes Formation is a terrestrial to shallow-marine, siliciclastic–carbonate succession (200 m thick) that was deposited in the eastern Southern Alps during the Late Triassic. SedimentaryExpand
An upper Tuvalian (Triassic) platform-basin system in the Julian Alps: the start-up of the Dolomia Principale (Southern Alps, Italy)
SummaryEast of Cave del Predil (formerly Raibl), a platform-basin transition of the Dolomia Principale (Hauptdolomit) is spectacularly exposed at a seismic scale. Therefore, the eastern margin of theExpand

Palynological investigations in the Carnian of the Cave del Predil area (Julian Alps, NE Italy)
The palynological analysis on a continuous shallow-marine succession of the western Tethys realm allows a better characterization of the Carnian (late Triassic) paleofloristic and paleoclimaticExpand
Regional and global changes around the Triassic–Jurassic boundary reflected in the late Norian–Hettangian history of the Apennine basins
Abstract Palaeogeographic restorations for the Late Triassic and Early Jurassic of the west-Mediterranean area show that significant facies changes occurred in this period. The study of three basinalExpand
Transition Between the Massive Reef – Backreef and Cyclic Lagoon Facies of the Dachstein Limestone in the Southern Part of the Dachstein Plateau, Northern Calcareous Alps, Upper Austria and Styria
Along the southern margin of the Dachstein Group Norian massive reef limestones are exposed that progress northward into well-bedded cyclic peritidallagoonal carbonates. Characteristic features ofExpand
