Abstract

This study describes the rhodolith-rich lithofacies of the Porto Badisco Calcarenites, an upper Chattian rhodalgal/larger foraminiferal-dominated unit exposed in the southern part of the Apulia Carbonate Platform (Salento Peninsula, Italy). The lensoid rhodolith-rich lithosome at the base of the studied section is made of rhodolith rudstone and floatstone which infill a channel-like depression inherited from the substrate. Changes in the texture of the rhodolith facies and in the inner structure of the rhodoliths reflect variations in submarine current velocity across the section of the channel. - (NF)
