Quantitative Geology of Late Jurassic Epicontinental Sediments in the Jura Mountains of Switzerland

The ebook summarizes approximately forty years of the author’s examine on sedimentary geology in an epicontinental (shelf) sea in the course of the past due Jurassic in northern Switzerland. It provides a synopsis of the interaction of various paleoclimate, of sea point diversifications, of various water intensity, of sea flooring topography, of vertical and lateral facies alterations, of strategies of sedimentation like aggradation and progradation, of compaction, of the nice local adjustments in premiums of sedimentation and in isostatic equilibration of the lithosphere less than load, and of concomitant synsedimentary tectonics.

51270 (Fig. 1, Table 1)). These magmas are clearly derived from mantle depleted in the light REE for a considerable period of time. A concomitant depletion in Rb is also apparent, but in the case of Tahiti and Malaita the magmas have slightly higher SVSr/86Sr ratios. This could result from (a) mixing of MORB mantle with a recycled radiogenic component or (b) influx of a high Rb/Sr fluid. 704 (~ ion lithophile elements) and LREE-enriched hydrous fluids in the mantle (LREE stands for light rare-earth elements).
