Tethyan uppermost Permian (Dzhulfian and Dorashamian) foraminiferal faunas and their paleogeographic
and tectonic implications.
Based on the results of the thickness analysis, distribution conditions, lithological and geochemical features there appears a possibility to make a conclusion that the sedimentation of the Ishim Formation occurred under the paleogeographic
setting of the continental weathering.
Lower Silurian cephalopod limestones from the Mojero River section (Eastern Siberia, Russia) and their paleogeographic
reconstruction, before subduction, shows an alternation of platforms and basins, including the Apennine Platform and the Apulian Platform separated by the Lagonegro Basin ( and references therein).
This interpretation is consistent with current paleogeographic
mapping indicating that accretion of Avalonia with the Ganderian margin of Laurentia occurred by the Pridoli.
This structure originated as a rift-type graben limited by paleotectonic and paleogeographic
blocks, such as the Coahuila block to the southwest (SW), the Tamaulipas block to the northeast (NE), and the Burro-Peyotes blocks to the north (N) (Figure 2).
and tectonic controls on the evolution of Cenozoic basins in the Altiplano and Western Cordillera of southern Peru.
Vardabasso, 1959; Cherchi and Schroeder, 1985a), the paleogeographic
separation from W and E Sardinia only existed during the early part of the Middle Jurassic: in fact, evidences of Middle Triassic to Early Jurassic removed sedimentary cover have been found as pebbles in the conglomerates of eastern Sardinia and Corsica..
Moreover, organic geochemistry evidence of the paleogeographic
relations between the sections is presented.
