Article
Full-text available
The study of microbialites development is a key tool to understand environmental pathways during deposition. We provide a detailed analysis of modern Central Andean microbialites from high‐altitude lakes. The stratigraphic record of Turquesa Lake shows a significant short‐term recolonization by microbialite‐producing microorganisms during environme...
Article
Full-text available
Modern microbialites in Argentina’s Puna (Central Andes) are considered a reliable tool for understanding the evolution of early life on our planet and developing strategies for detecting life on Mars. The morphological, structural and geochemical variations in these deposits, together with their distribution and architecture, are some of the most...
Article
Albian dinosaur tracks from the Monte Grande Formation (Basque-Cantabrian Basin) are described. Sedimentary succession shows seven different facies associations (FA) with four track-bearing levels (levels 1-4) of a braid delta system. The FA4, a proximal crevasse subdelta, preserves in levels 2 and 3 theropod, possibly sauropod and undetermined din...
Article
Full-text available
Microbialite‐producing microorganisms that inhabit the Puna lakes are traditionally considered constituents of fragile microsystems, unable to resist important environmental variations. Nevertheless, this region has experienced significant climatic fluctuations during the Holocene, raising the unsolved issue on how microbialite‐forming systems have...
Article
The Los Menucos Complex (North Patagonian Massif, Río Negro province, Argentina) has been long regarded as Late Triassic in age. A Dicynodontipus-dominated record is historically known from this complex and particularly from the Puesto Tscherig locality. Here we report the Puesto Vera site, where a new track-bearing horizon was discovered within a...
Article
Full-text available
Stromatolites are biogenic sedimentary structures formed by the interplay of biological (microbial composition) and environmental factors (local hydrodynamic conditions, clastic input and/or water chemistry). Well-preserved, three-dimensional (3D) fossil stromatolites are key to assessing the environmental factors controlling their growth and resul...
Article
The Yacoraite Formation is a worldwide known unit due to the diversity and abundance of vertebrate ichnological record. The complex tectono-sedimentary evolution related to the Andean Cycle generated high dip angles of bedding and, consequently, large tracksites are not easily accessible, making hard the ichnological analysis. Here, we describe a n...
Article
Humankind began with extra-planetary expeditions in the 1960s. To date, more than fifty manned and unmanned lunar missions have taken place. Maybe, the most iconic image of these campaigns is the bootprint left and photographed by the astronaut Edwin Aldrin. Nevertheless, there is also other evidence of human activities on the Moon, such as rover t...

The Yacoraite Formation (Maastrichtian–Danian; Balbuena Subgroup; Salta Group), from Northwestern Argentina, represents a shallow epeiric unit which is the result of transgressions in the Andean basin of South America. Herein, we study the avian footprints from the Maimará locality, Jujuy province, and Quebrada del Tapón ichnosite, Salta province....
Article
Modern microbialites are useful partial analogues of their ancient counterparts and especially can provide clues on the conditions to which they were once exposed to. One of the conundrums which has been slow to solve is the role that grazing and burrowing metazoans had towards disrupting the Phanerozoic microbial mats that formed microbialites, es...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Fieldwork is crucial in palaeontological studies. Both when the fossils are being exposed from the site and when they are studied in situ. Therefore, an exhaustive documentation of these remains and their reciprocal position within the rocks are necessary for further study, including taphonomical, palaeoecological, and systematical analyses. For th...

A representative outcrop of the Messinian stromatolites belonging to the Terminal Carbonate Complex unit, from the northern sector of the Bajo Segura basin ( Caja de Ahorros del Mediterraneo section, Sierra del Colmenar, SE Spain) has been studied. Here, we present a detailed analysis of the architecture, external morphology, and internal morpholog...
Article
The Los Menucos locality in Patagonia, Argentina, bears a well-known ichnofauna mostly documented by small therapsid footprints. Within this ichnofauna, large pentadactyl footprints are also represented but to date were relatively underinvestigated. These footprints are here analyzed and discussed based on palaeobiological indications (i.e., trackm...

The Paso Córdoba fossiliferous site (Río Negro, Northern Patagonia) is one of the first Mesozoic fossiliferous localities studied in Argentina. There, turtle, crocodile and dinosaur remains as well as dinosaur and bird tracks have been recorded. Recently, a new locality with vertebrate tracks, the Cañadón del Desvío, has been discovered in Paso Cór...

A relative long sauropod trackway and hundreds of varied indeterminate dinosaur tracks, many of them probably related to ornitischians, were found many years ago in the Valle del Tonco tracksite (Salta, northwestern Argentina). This sauropod trackway is now described and analyzed in an updated context. Ichnological analyses were mainly conducted du...

The shoreline carbonate lagoon deposits of the Yacoraite Formation in the Maimará locality, in the Quebrada de Humahuaca (Jujuy, northwestern Argentina) reveal vertebrate and invertebrate trace fossils that are distributed in two distinct sub-environments: (A) the subtidal-lower intertidal zone (S-LI): a moderate/high energy shoreline under wave an...
Article
Uppermost Cretaceous (Campanian-Maastrichtian) large ornithopod tracks are scarce in Gondwana. This record is limited to few citations in the northern Argentina, Peru and possibly Bolivia, although their ichnological affinities are still under discussion. Recently, a new vertebrate tracksite with large ornithopod tracks has been found in the Maimar...

In the seventies, R. Casamiquela found and collected one small slab with footprints close to the town of Ingeniero Jacobacci, in Northwestern Patagonia (Río Negro province, Argentina). The footprints were published succinctly without a concrete geographical and geological location. Casamiquela named an isolated track as Tridigitichnus inopinatus, o...

A new ichnofossil, Meanderovaleichnus huenickeni ichnogen. et ichnosp. nov., is described from the fluviolacustrine deposits of the Bajo de Véliz Formation (Upper Carboniferous–Permian). The trace fossil consists of meanders (epichnial) with regular constrictions of variable width along the course. It is interpreted as a locomotion trace (repichnio...

The shallow carbonate facies at the top of the Yacoraite Formation (Late Cretaceous–Early Palaeocene) in the Metán sub-basin, Salta Basin (Cretaceous-Eocene), northern Argentina, have domal stromatolitic boundstones with peculiar cavities, interpreted here as bioclaustrations. The cavities appear to have been produced by organisms that lived within...

The selection was based on geological and paleontological evidence. Th...

Questions

Question (1)
Question
I´m currently working with round concave structures preserved in a volcaniclastic bedding plane. So, would be interesting the differentiation between raindrops against gas bubbles structures or similar ones. Hence I´m looking for papers or experiences on this topic.
Thanks in advance!
