Mesozoic and Cenozoic Sequence Stratigraphy of European Basins
Mesozoic and Cenozoic Sequence Stratrigraphy of European Basins - This project was designed to build a documented chronostratigraphic and outcrop record of depositional sequences calibrated across European Basins. Data on standard stages, magnetostratigraphy, and geochronology integrated with high resolution biostratigraphy calibrate the stratigraphic position of depositional sequence boundaries. Higher order eustatic sequences show a significant increase in the number identified. A good portion of the European Mesozoic and Cenozoic succession is set in a sequence stratigraphic context with a better stratigraphic record of its bonding surfaces.

A virtually complete succession of shallow-marine, epicontinental Lower Jurassic strata crops out in excellent exposures along the North Yorkshire coast (U.K.). Borehole control of the inland continuation of these deposits, together with the availability of a detailed ammonite biostratigraphy, allows for the construction of a cross-section correlating the relatively thick succession of the Cleveland Basin (exposed in the coastal sections) with the more condensed succession on the adjacent Market Weighton High (encountered in boreholes). This study is concerned with only the Hettangian to Pliensbachian part of the Liassic succession, corresponding to the informal 'lower Lias' and 'middle Lias' divisions...
