Abstract

Carbonate platforms bordering the Tethyan margins carry a distinct periodic signal that can be related to Jurassic-Cretaceous climate and eustatism. They yield a rich archive of information, including the tectonics affecting the platforms at regional (subsidence) as well as at «local» (uplift) scale, at a time scale between 104 and 105/106 years (order of magnitude). In Central and Southern Italy, the AA. have analyzed at centimetre scale, along well exposed sections and in bore cores, textures and early diagenetic features of Cretaceous carbonate platform deposits that evidence oscillations in which a hierarchy of cycles (elementary cycles, bundles and super bundles) has been recognized. - (NF)
