Climate-driven hydrological change and carbonate platform demise induced by the Paleocene–Eocene Thermal Maximum (southern Pyrenees)
Abstract The Campo section in the Spanish Pyrenees is classical for shallow-water Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) studies. Despite extensive work in the last decades, the stratigraphicExpand
Larger benthic foraminiferal response to the PETM in the Potwar Basin (Eastern Neotethys, Pakistan)
Abstract The Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) was the most pronounced global and transient warming event of the Cenozoic and was associated with marked changes in the biosphere, atmosphere andExpand
Biological evolution of the carbonate platform of the Taleh Zang Formation in Kermanshah region
In this paper, the biological evolution of the carbonateplatform of the TalehZang Formation with Paleocene age in Kermanshah region havebeen investigated in two stages concentrating on fossil debris.Expand
Constraining the magnitude of the carbon isotope excursion during the Paleocene-Eocene thermal maximum using larger benthic foraminifera
Abstract The Paleocene-Eocene thermal maximum (PETM) was an extraordinary pulse of global warming that left an indelible mark on the Earth approximately 56 Ma ago. This warming event is associatedExpand
Discovery of the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum in shallow-marine sediments of the Xigaze forearc basin, Tibet: A record of enhanced extreme precipitation and siliciclastic sediment flux
Abstract The Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM, ~56 Ma) was one of the major global deep-time hyperthermal events of the past. Studies of shallow-marine PETM records are crucial to understandExpand
Early Eocene orthophragminids from the Lower Indus Basin, Pakistan, and their biostratigraphic implication
Abstract Orthophragminids are a key biostratigraphic proxy for Paleocene–Eocene sequences in western Tethys, but poorly known in eastern Tethys. The orthophragminids were previously misinterpreted asExpand
Larger benthic foraminiferal assemblages and their response to Middle Eocene Climate Optimum in the Kohat Basin (Pakistan, eastern Tethys)
Abstract The Middle Eocene Climatic Optimum (MECO) at ∼40 Ma is a significant global warming event associated with pronounced changes in the hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere. The KohatExpand
Sea level, biotic and carbon-isotope response to the Paleocene–Eocene thermal maximum in Tibetan Himalayan platform carbonates
Abstract During the Paleocene–Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM, ~56 Ma), a large, negative carbon-isotope excursion (CIE) testifies to a massive perturbation of the global carbon cycle. Shallow-marineExpand
