Documentation of eustatic variations for the Triassic is limited by the paucity of the preserved marine stratigraphic record, which is confined mostly to the low and middle paleolatitudes of the Tethys Ocean. A revised sea-level curve based on reevaluation of global stratigraphic data shows a clear trend of low seastands for an extended period that spans almost 80 m.y., from the latest Permian to the earliest Jurassic. In the Early and Middle Triassic, the long-term sea levels were similar to… 
Palaeogeographical evolution of the Rattray Volcanic Province, Central North Sea
The Rattray Volcanics Member, at the triple junction of the North Sea rift, is here subdivided into two informal sub-members based on analysis of core, wireline and seismic data. The Lower and Upper
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


Triassic stratigraphy, facies and evolution of the Arabian shelf in the northern United Arab Emirates
This study provides a reconstruction of the Late Permian and Triassic depositional history of the Arabian shelf in the northern United Arab Emirates based on facies analysis and foraminiferal
Mesozoic and Cenozoic Chronostratigraphy and Cycles of Sea-Level Change
Sequence-stratigraphic concepts are used to identify genetically related strata and their bounding regional unconformities, or their correlative conformities, in seismic, well-log, and outcrop data.
Synchrony of the Central Atlantic magmatic province and the Triassic-Jurassic boundary climatic and biotic crisis
The evolution of life on Earth is marked by catastrophic extinction events, one of which occurred ca. 200 Ma at the transition from the Triassic Period to the Jurassic Period (Tr-J boundary),
Triassic transgressive-regressive cycles in the Sverdrup Basin, Svalbard and the Barents Shelf
Nine transgressive-regressive (T-R) cycles have recently been recognized in the Triassic succession of the Sverdrup Basin, Arctic Canada (Embry, 1988). The transgressions which initiated the cycles
Phanerozoic marine inundation of continents driven by dynamic topography above subducting slabs
A spherical model of mantle flow constrained by the locations of trenches can be used to predict the dynamic topography of the Earth's surface, and hence the marine inundation of continents. For past
Climate-induced fluctuations in sea level during non-glacial times
DURING periods of time when the Earth supports ice caps, sea level fluctuates periodically at intervals of 104–105 yr, with amplitudes of tens to more than 100 metres. These fluctuations result from
Extensive 200-million-year-Old continental flood basalts of the central atlantic magmatic province
The Central Atlantic Magmatic Province (CAMP) is defined by tholeiitic basalts that crop out in once-contiguous parts of North America, Europe, Africa, and South America and is associated with the
