TitleLong-distance correlations in the Valanginian-Hauterivian: Argentina - Western Mediterranean - NW Europe
JournalScripta Geologica. Special Issue
KeywordsAmmonites; Argentina; Mediterranean area; NW Europe; Early Cretaceous
AbstractDespite the considerable differences in faunas from three widely separated areas in the Early Cretaceous world (Argentina, the Mediterranean area and NW Europe) eight genera are common to all three: Valanginites, Olcostephanus, Karakaschiceras, Neohoploceras, Neocomites, Oosterella, Spitidiscus, and Crioceratites. Across two well-marked intervals (mid Valanginian and mid Hauterivian) the faunas are sufficiently close to allow correlation across the whole area. These represent intervals of global sealevel rise.
