We are delighted to present the IJG readers with a fresh collection of papers on a classical subject in the peri-Mediterranean geology: the fate of Mesozoic carbonate platforms through the tough times of plate breakup, opening of new oceanic seaways, and global environmental change. While the benthic carbonate factories tried hard not to succumb to the potentially lethal turmoil caused by the action of those forces, many of them did drown and were converted into pelagic carbonate platforms (PCP), giving rise to depositional systems (PCP/Basin systems) which have been challenging regional geologists, keeping stratigraphers, paleontologists and sedimentologists busy during the...
