An interval of episodic carbonate productivity, lithostratigraphically recognized as the ‘Calcaires inférieurs’ (upper member of the Adoudou Formation), took place across the Neoproterozoic–Cambrian transition onlapping the western Saghro inlier, Morocco. Sedimentation of the ‘Calcaires inférieurs’ was highly variable: in relatively stable substrates, a peritidal-dominated mixed platform is recorded where deposition was primarily controlled by autocyclic processes and accommodation space availability, whereas, in unstable substrates, the tectonic activity associated with the inherited block-faulting basement led to deposition of complex slide sheets composed of penecontemporaneous isoclinal folds and disrupted strata. The uppermost part of the ‘Calcaires inférieurs’ displays a negative δ...
