  • Sequence stratigraphy and microplankton palaeoenvironmental dynamics
           across the Jurassic–Cretaceous transition in the Canadian Arctic

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: INGRAMS; Stephen, JOLLEY, David W., SCHNEIDER, Simon
      Pages: 159 - 174
      Abstract: The Jurassic to Cretaceous strata exposed in the Rollrock Section, Sverdrup Basin, Arctic Canada, represent one of the northernmost continuous outcrops spanning this poorly understood transition. The Oxfordian–Valanginian mudstones of the Rollrock Section were deposited in a shallow marine environment and, as such, provide the ideal lithology to investigate the response of high latitude dinoflagellate cyst populations to the frequent environmental perturbations of this time. Using a multivariate statistical approach, distinct palaeoecologically significant groups are identified and directly linked to time and palaeoenvironments, allowing for the reconstruction of underlying long term palaeoenvironmental trends. These palaeoenvironmental trends are identified to be driven by sequence stratigraphic cycles. For the first time, fourth order sequences are recorded from this pivotal period in the Sverdrup Basin and reveal an additional level of short term climatic events that complicate the identification of long term trends. The relationship existing between marine phytoplankton and climate is utilised to decipher the interplay of long-term and short-term climate fluctuations, distinguishing them from evolutionary trends. Two groups of dinoflagellate cysts, identified by process morphology, are recorded to act as environmental proxies. High percentages of proximochorate dinoflagellate cysts, such as Trichodinium erinaceoides, indicate more proximal, high energy, nutrient rich conditions and are dominant in fourth order transgressive systems tracts. High percentages of chorate dinoflagellate cysts, such as Oligosphaeridium complex, signify distal, low energy, nutrient depleted conditions and are dominant in fourth order highstand systems tracts.

  • Reconstruction of a Ross lost Cambrian Series 2 mixed
           siliciclastic–carbonate platform from carbonate clasts of the Shackleton
           Range, Antarctica

      Authors: RODRÍGUEZ-MARTÍNEZ; Marta, BUGGISCH, Werner, MENÉNDEZ, Silvia, MORENO-EIRIS, Elena, PEREJÓN, Antonio
      Pages: 175 - 226
      Abstract: The presence of archaeocyath-bearing clasts from Cenozoic tills and Cambrian Mount Wegener Formation reveal erosion of a hidden Cambrian carbonate platform in Shackleton Range, Antarctica. We provide microfacies, paleontological, diagenetic and tectonically induced fabric data from carbonate clasts which, in addition to available geochemical and geochronological data from Shackleton Range, allow the paleoenvironmental reconstruction of a lost Cambrian Series 2 mixed siliciclastic–carbonate platform that was developed and eroded during the Ross orogeny. Carbonate production was dominated by non-skeletal grains in possibly restricted platform-interior and oolitic shoal complex settings, while open subtidal sub-environments (calcimicrobe carpets, calcimicrobe–archaeocyath patch reefs, muddy bottoms) were dominated by a diverse calcimicrobe assemblage and/or by secondary to accessory heterozoan assemblage (archaeocyaths and other sponges, chancelloriids, hyoliths, coralomorphs, trilobites, echinoderms). We describe a Botoman assemblage with 34 archaeocyathan species among 12 existing archaeocyathan genera. A new archaeocyath family Shackletoncyathidae is proposed. New species (Rotundocyathus glacius sp. nov., Buggischicyathus microporus gen. et sp. nov., Paragnaltacyathus hoeflei, Shackletoncyathus buggischi gen. et. sp. nov., Santelmocyathus santelmoi gen. et sp. nov., Wegenercyathus sexangulae gen. et sp. nov.) and Tabulaconus kordae coralomorph are reported from Antarctica for the first time. Archaeocyathan fauna share few species with contemporary fauna of South Australia (9) and even fewer with the Antarctic platforms of the Shackleton Limestone (2) or the Schneider Hills limestone (1). Similarity is greater with Antarctic allochthonous assemblages of Permo-Carboniferous tillites from Ellsworth Mountains (2), Cenozoic deposits from King George Island (4) or Weddell Sea (1). The Shackleton Range lost/hidden platform shows a distinct entity related with its tectonosedimentary evolution, in a possible back-arc basin on the Mozambique seaway during the E and W Gondwana amalgamation, which distinguishes it from those developed on the palaeo-Pacific margin of the E Antarctic craton.

  • Landscape response to deformation in the Sabalan area, NW Iran: Inferred
           from quantitative morphological and structural analysis

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: SABER; Reza, CAGLAYAN, Ayse, ISIK, Veysel
      Pages: 227 - 252
      Abstract: The geological and tectonic background of the Sabalan area in NW Iran and its present-day surface processes make it ideal for examining the effects of tectonic processes in shaping the Earth's crust. As a result of the intense distribution of pre-Quaternary and Quaternary structures (e.g., faults, joints and folds), most of the drainage basins in the southern and central parts of the study area have developed under tectonic-dominated conditions, whereas the effects of erosional processes are greater in the north and east. An evaluation of the geomorphic indices using the index of active tectonics (IAT) and analytical hierarchy process (AHP) methods shows that the AHP results are more reliable than the IAT results and are coherent with the geological and structural conditions of the study area. The geomorphic results are highly consistent with the intensity and distribution of fractures. The majority of fractures have developed in a NW–SE direction, indicating antithetic R′ Riedel fractures to the main NE-SW-trending faults. However, a significant number of the fractures in the study area are NNE–SSW- and NE–SW-oriented R and P fractures and NNW–SSE-oriented tension fractures. Palaeostress analysis of the fault data shows at least two faulting events in the pre-Quaternary and Quaternary, respectively. The pre-Quaternary NNW–SSE-striking dextral strike-slip faults experienced post-Eocene 25–30° clockwise rotation and re-activated as NE–SW-striking sinistral faults during the Quaternary. Although seismic activity is currently low, the consistency of our results with the regional stress data show that the study area is still tectonically active.

  • 10Be exposure age dating of Late Quaternary relative sea level changes and
           deglaciation of W Jura and NE Islay, Scottish Inner Hebrides

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: DAWSON; Alastair G., BISHOP, Paul, HANSOM, James, FABEL, Derek
      Pages: 253 - 266
      Abstract: New 10Be exposure age dating and geomorphological mapping of emerged shoreline features in W Jura and NE Islay throw new light on the regional pattern of ice sheet deglaciation and late-glacial relative sea level change. We conclude that the oldest and highest emerged shorelines in this area were produced ~15.7–16.3 ka, shortly after ice sheet deglaciation ~16.5 ka. It is envisaged that the first incursion of marine waters into coastal areas took place close to a former ice sheet margin that oscillated in position across this part of the Scottish Inner Hebrides. The first evidence of late-glacial marine sedimentation following deglaciation consists of emerged marine terrace fragments and unvegetated gravel beach ridges, the former represented by a prominent glacio-isostatically tilted shoreline that declines in altitude NE to SW, from ~40 m above ordnance datum (OD) in NW Jura to ~19 m OD in central Islay. In W Jura, north of Loch Tarbert, spectacular staircases of up to 55 unvegetated gravel beach ridges were formed shortly after regional deglaciation, possibly within 1 ka. A preliminary estimate of the average rate of relative sea level lowering across W Jura between deglaciation and the Younger Dryas is in the order of ~7 mmyr−1. Geomorphological evidence from Shian Bay, W Jura, indicates a truncation of the late-glacial beach ridge staircases by a large 480-m-long beach ridge (the Colonsay Ridge) at ~14.9 ka, when former relative sea level was at ~18 m OD. This ridge may represent the product of either a stillstand in the progressive lowering of relative sea level during the late-glacial or a reversal. This raises the intriguing possibility of an association between ridge formation and the timing of the well-established global meltwater pulse 1A between ~14.65 and ~14.8 ka.

  • Reconstruction of the skull and description of new anatomical features of
           Diadectes absitus (Diadectidae, Diadectomorpha) from the early Permian of
           central Germany

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: KLEMBARA; Jozef, BERMAN, David S, HENRICI, Amy C., MARTENS, Thomas, HAIN, Miroslav
      Pages: 267 - 278
      Abstract: Presented for the first time is a reconstruction of the skull of Diadectes (Diadectomorpha) based on several specimens of a single species Diadectes absitus from the early Permian of central Germany. Since its first discovery at the end of the 19th century the only reconstructions of the skull of Diadectes were without specific designation, despite a rich Permo-Carboniferous fossil record. The skull of D. absitus is reconstructed in dorsal, lateral, posterior, and ventral views and includes exocranial and endocranial elements. The reconstructions of Diadectes presented here are compared with those of all other authors, and the differences are analysed and discussed. The comparisons recognised three features not recorded in other species of Diadectes: (1) anterior and posterior margins of the transverse process of the pterygoid parallel one another; (2) the angle between the posterior margin of the transverse process and the lateral margin of the quadrate ramus of the pterygoid is sharply defined; and (3) the anterior ventral margin of the transverse process of the pterygoid bears a distinct sharp ridge. These characters are discussed in the context of the skull anatomy of Diadectes and inaccuracies in previous cranial reconstructions of the genus are rectified.

  • Stratigraphic architecture of the Cenozoic Dugong Supersequence:
           implications for the late post-breakup development of the Eucla Basin,
           southern Australian continental margin

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Authors: STOKER; Martyn S., HOLFORD, Simon P., TOTTERDELL, Jennifer M.
      Pages: 279 - 312
      Abstract: This study presents an appraisal of the Middle Eocene–Quaternary Dugong Supersequence of the Eucla Basin, offshore southern Australia. It combines details of the rock record with seismic-stratigraphical information, and the resulting stratigraphic framework provides constraints on the nature of the late post-breakup development of the southern Australian continental margin. It is well established that the onshore-to-mid-shelf succession comprises a predominantly aggrading-to-prograding unconformity-bounded succession of carbonate platform deposits; however, our analysis of the outer shelf–upper slope section challenges the widely held view that this shelf-margin wedge represents a distally steepened prograding carbonate ramp primarily modulated by global eustasy. Instead, our results show that the Middle Eocene–Quaternary succession is punctuated by a series of unconformities that reflect a persistent tectonic instability and differential vertical movements throughout the late post-breakup period, the genesis of which is most closely related to tectonic events. Moreover, the upper slope clinoform succession was constructed and shaped predominantly by alongslope processes, and four different contourite drift types are recognised based on their seismic-stratigraphic expression: elongate mounded drift (Quaternary); infill drift (Pliocene); plastered drift (Oligocene); and separated drift (Middle–Upper Eocene). The Quaternary drift – herein termed the ‘Eyre Terrace Drift’ – is a spectacular basin-scale deposit, over 500 m thick and traced for up to 200 km along the upper slope Eyre Terrace. Upslope-migrating sediment waves are associated with this drift. Key sedimentary attributes consistent with a contourite origin include fine-grained sediment, multi-scale gradational bed contacts and pervasive bioturbation. There is also evidence of episodic downslope mass-movement processes ranging from the large-scale Late Neogene Slide, which extends downslope for 15–20 km, to sporadic slumped beds and turbidites recovered in boreholes. The interaction of alongslope and downslope processes indicates a more dynamic sedimentary setting than previously assumed along the outer margin of the Eucla Basin.
