IMPACT OF CRETACEOUS SEA-LEVEL RISE AND ANOXIC EVENTS ON THE MESOZOIC CARBONATE PLATFORM OF YUGOSLAVIA

Abstract:

The Adriatic/Dinaric carbonate platform of Yugoslavia was influenced by rapid sea level rise and an oceanic anoxic event during the Cenomanian-Turonian. Open-marine biota associated with and bracketed by successions of typical shallow-water carbonates, indicate partial drowning of substantial areas of the platform during this time. The presence of carbon-rich and fish-bearing platy limestones, commonly cherty, as an associated coeval facies indicates the development of anoxic or euxinic envir...
