6th Regional Symposium of the IFAA (July 1-5, 2009, Milano,Italy)
Following a consolidate tradition of our symposia, the scientific topics cover any aspects of calcareous algae and microbialites, including their present-day distribution and abundance. In addition, we are inviting to present your contribution to a cross-cut topic with strong implications in biology, palaeontology, sedimentology, geology and climatology: the quantification (in space or time, at any scale) of the carbonate production of calcareous algae. Although calcareous algae commonly occur both in the present-day shelf environments at all latitudes and in the fossil record, we still need a tentative quantification of their abundance, in space and time. Calcareous algae are sensitive to the expected consequences of global change, therefore our contribution will be particularly important to a wide scientific community, not only to algae specialists. Therefore, especially welcome are contributions aimed at the identification/delimitation of marine habitats dominated by calcareous algae, also by geophysical survey, and all approaches to the quantification of living/fossil calcareous algae in different environmental/paleoenvironmental settings.

Post-doctoral Fellowship, Bushveld Intelligence Centre, Department of Geology, University of Pretoria
To start in 2008, for a renewable one year contract (maximum is two years). Annual Fellowship is R100,000-00 (normally non-taxable), single return airfare from overseas (where relevant), plus field expenses.
The project is to carry out a holistic study of the tectonic and structural setting of the Bushveld Complex, within a framework of Transvaal and Waterberg Basins geodynamic development. Key topics to be addressed are given below (# s 4 to 6, particularly):
(1) To critically assess existing work on basin analysis of the Transvaal basin, and to fill in the gaps in the western part of that preservational basin, and in its adjacent eastern-Botswana portion;
(2) to carry out a basin analysis of the central Main Waterberg Basin, to complement more geographically limited extant studies along its southern and NE margins, and in the smaller Middelberg Basin;
(3) to fully examine, in detail the nature and history of the deposits of the Loskop, Glentig and Rust de Winter Formations (traditionally regarded as uppermost Transvaal units, but clearly syn-Bushveld molasse deposits, from the preliminary work of Jacques Martini [1998. The Loskop Formation and its relationship to the Bushveld Complex, South Africa, J. Afr. Earth Sci., 27/2, 193-222] on certain Loskop outcrops) in order to better understand spatial and chronological relations between the three suites of the Bushveld, the Rooiberg volcanics and these essentially syn-Bushveld Loskop sedimentary and lesser volcanic deposits. The structural effects of Bushveld mafic activity can be read, to a certain extent, from the nature and variability of these pan-Loskop deposits.
(4) To collate existing and collect new structural data on the Bushveld Complex (also relevant geophysical data) to build a regional data set.
(5) Most importantly, to link the evolution of the Bushveld Complex to the gedynamic history of its enclosing Transvaal and Waterberg Basins, and to existing cratonic architecture, and to post-Bushveld tectonic events.
(6) To establish the regional metamorphic history related to Bushveld intrusion and to integrate this with the above studies.

Review of some Aptian ammonites collected by Gaston Astre in Lleida Province, Catalonia, Spain
Josep A. Moreno-Bedmar & Keith P. Minor.- We study the three best preserved ammonites collected by Astre in 1924-1925 in Lleida Province, Catalonia, Spain, in order to assess their taxonomic assignment. We also include images of these ammonoids since they were not illustrated in Astre's original 1934 work. This taxonomic review allows us to identify these lower Aptian ammonites as Pseudohaploceras liptoviense, Deshayesites sp. and Dufrenoyia sp.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/$$$$$

Sequence stratigraphic architecture of marine to fluvial deposits across a passive margin (Cenomanian, Atlantic margin, Morocco, Agadir transect)
Badre Essafraoui, Serge Ferry, Danièle Groshény, Nourrisaid Içame, Hassan El Aouli, Moussa Masrour, Luc G. Bulot, Yves Géraud & Mohamed Aoutem.- Seven sections, covering the upper Albian to lowermost Turonian, have been correlated from full-marine to continental-dominated deposits across a passive margin, along a transect 425 km long, from the present-day Atlantic coast to the "Pre-African Trough" between the Anti-Atlas and the High-Atlas. The thickness of the Cenomanian succession changes from around 500 metres in the fully marine sections to 250 metres in mostly continental facies in the western High-Atlas, about 150 km updip, to a few tens of metres in the Bou Tazoult area. The strata thicken again eastwards into the Pre-African Trough where they can be traced without major facies changes to the Kem Kem embayment and to the Bechar area in Algeria. Over all this eastern area, continental facies are overlain by the fully-marine shallow-water deposits of the Cenomanian-Turonian boundary interval. A first major conclusion is that fluvial aggradation in high-frequency transgressive-regressive sequences is coeval with the seaward-shift of the shoreline, in accordance with the genetic sequence stratigraphic model of Galloway (1989). Both the flatness of the depositional profile and the corresponding very low energy of the marine environment during the transgressions account for the blanket of red continental clays on top of marine facies in updip depositional sequences, which is then preserved under the marine transgressive surface of the next sequence. A second major conclusion is that the high-frequency transgressive-regressive (T-R) sequences do not look like classical parasequences bounded by transgression surfaces. They usually exhibit a surface created by a sea-level fall within the regressive half-cycle. This is interpreted in the following way: regressions did not operate through a regular seaward-shift of the shoreline, but through stepped sea-level falls. The very low slope of the depositional ramp is thought to have enhanced the sequence stratigraphic record of such stepped regressions. Short-term, high-frequency sequences are organized into medium-frequency T-R sequences (seven in the Cenomanian) which show an overall aggrading and slowly retrograding pattern along the whole transect. Comparisons with other basins show that medium-frequency sequences do not fit the third-order depositional sequences described elsewhere, casting doubts about a eustatic mechanism for their deposition.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/£££££

End of a modern geological myth: there are no rudists in Brazil! Paleobiogeographic implications
Bruno Granier & Dimas Dias-Brito.- Out of the few records of rudists from the Cretaceous strata of the South Atlantic coastal basins only two refer to Brazilian localities. However, petrographic analyses demonstrate that these shells should be assigned to Ostreids or to Pycnodontids rather than to Rudistids. More specifically, the domain considered herein, north of the Río Grande Rise - Walvis Ridge barrier, was part of the warm-water "tropical" realm, but it was not part of the Mesogean domain because both Rudistids and Orbitolinas are missing. In addition, the scarcity of corals leads us to ascribe the taphonomic assemblage to the Chloralgal facies. Neither generalized hypersalinity or extreme sea-water temperatures seem to account for these biotic peculiarities. Instead, our alternative hypothesis favors the driving role played by oceanic circulation in the dispersal of the benthic organisms.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/56880

Facies, biostratigraphy, diagenesis, and depositional environments of Lower Cretaceous strata, Sierra San José section, Sonora (Mexico)
Jayagopal Madhavaraju, Robert W. Scott, Yong Il Lee, Kunjukrishnan Sathy Bincy, Carlos M. González-León & Sooriamuthu Ramasamy.- We used petrofacies analysis, carbon, oxygen and strontium isotope data to interpret the isotopic variations in the carbonate rocks of the Mural Formation of Sonora (Sierra San José section), Mexico. The petrographic study reveals a range of lithofacies from wackestone to packstone. The analyzed limestones show significant negative ?18O values (-18.6 to -10.9 VPDB) and ?13C values ranging from negative to positive (-2.6 to +2.5? VPDB). The absence of correlation between ?13C and ?18O values suggests a primary marine origin for the ?13C values of limestones from the Sierra San José section. The limestones have large variations in 87Sr/86Sr values (0.707479 to 0.708790). Higher 87Sr/86Sr ratios in various levels of the studied section suggest that most of the sediments were derived from the Proterozoic basement of the Caborca block during Early Cretaceous time. A decrease in 87Sr/86Sr ratios at certain levels indicates an influx of lesser amounts of radiogenic Sr that could have been caused by contribution of sediments from the Triassic and Jurassic volcanic rocks.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/56879

Cambrian fossils from the Barrandian area (Czech Republic) stored in the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle de Lille
Old?ich Fatka, Petr Budil, Catherine Crônier, Jessie Cuvelier, Luká? Laibl, Thierry Oudoire, Marika Polechová & Lucie Fatková.- A complete list of fossils originating from the Cambrian of the Barrandian area and housed in the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle de Lille is compiled. The collection includes two agnostids, ten trilobites, one brachiopod and one echinoderm species, all collected at ten outcrops in the Buchava Formation of the Skryje-Tý?ovice Basin and most probably also at two outcrops in the Jince Formation of the P?íbram-Jince Basin. A large part of the material was collected by Prof. Charles Barrois and Dr. Louis Dollé (both University of Lille) during the excursion organised before the Ninth International Geological Congress in Vienna in 1903. Other, poorly documented specimens were purchased from the enterprise Krantz towards the end of the 19th century and in the first years of 20th century. The geographic position and stratigraphy of outcrops, from which the material originates, are briefly discussed.- Handle-ID: http://hdl.handle.net/2042/56878
