Novel palaeoenvironmental interpretations and high-resolution correlations in Oxfordian reefal formations (fig. 1, 2) are provided by genetic stratigraphy. The main objectives of this study are: (1) to determine environmental conditions and the zonation of depositional environments; (2) to propose a genetic sequence framework and correlations of the outcrop sections; (3) to evaluate a possible tectonic control on coral buildup settlement and growth both at local scale.
