Information - SSP2 Sedimentary cyclicity in basinal deposits: possible mechanisms (co-sponsored by IAS)
Limestone-marl alternations observed in basinal deposits are frequently used as a cyclostratigraphic tool. In general, these rythmites are thought to record primary environmental signals. This view has been challenged by studies that propose a solely diagenetic origin of these rhythmites. Other studies, however, showed that the coupled variability in productivity and diagenesis may produce sedimentary cyclicities on Milankovitch and sub-Milankovitch scales. To stimulate the debate on the origin of these cycles we seek contributions that provide new insights on the origin of the sedimentary cyclicity in basinal deposits and discuss to what extent these rhythmites can be used for cyclostratigraphic analysis.
