An integrated cyclostratigraphic approach was applied to the 460-m-thick succession in the Latemar platform interior. The approach uses new high-resolution cyclostratigraphic data from vertical sections, lateral tracing of physical surfaces over the platform top, new and existing biostratigraphic data, existing isotopic ages from volcanic ash layers, and new spectral analyses in order to develop a genetic cyclostratigraphic model. Hierarchical cycles include meter-scale shallowing-upward microcycles and 2–6 bundled thinning-upward macrocycles. Lateral tracing and correlation of microcycles and macrocycles provides a high-resolution 2D architectural model of the platform interior. The large majority of microcycles and macrocycles is physically persistent over the...
