Abstract

The Aptian-Campanian sequence in the South-East of France (Gard) shows three weathering phases dated of middle Cenomanian, upper Turonian and lower Santonian. The discovery of weathering paleoprofiles modifies the classic stratigraphic, paleogeographic and tectonic opinions, because the so-called "continental formations", in this considered area, are in reality, marine deposits secondary weathered in lateritic continental context.
