Palaeoceanography and sedimentology of a mid-Cretaceous Greensand

Abstract:

The Upper Albian (mid-Cretaceous) sediments of the Anglo-Paris Basin display a range of condensation phenomena, including glauconitic and phosphoritic sands, glauconitic intraformational pebble beds, and mineralised nodular hardgrounds. These are interpreted as the result of sedimentation rate fluctuations controlled by small-scale relative sea-level changes of at least regional nature. The regional signal was modified by local tectonics, including occasional synsedimentary faulting and t...
