Article
Full-text available
The absolute position during the Cenozoic of northern Zealandia, a continent that lies more than 90% submerged in the southwest Pacific Ocean, is inferred from global plate motion models, because local paleomagnetic constraints are virtually absent. We present new paleolatitude constraints using paleomagnetic data from International Ocean Discovery...
Article
Full-text available
Sediment mass accumulation rate (MAR) is a proxy for paleoceanographic conditions, especially if biological productivity generated most of the sediment. We determine MAR records from pelagic calcareous sediments in Tasman Sea based on analysis of 11 boreholes and >3 million seismic reflection horizon picks. Seismic data from regions of 10,000–30,00...
Article
Full-text available
Rapid onset of subduction tectonics across the western Pacific convergent margins in the early Eocene was followed by a slower phase of margin growth of the proto Tonga-Kermadec subduction system north of Zealandia during a middle Eocene phase to tectonic adjustment. We present new age constraints from International Ocean Discovery Program Expediti...
Article
Full-text available
We present an updated time frame for the 30 m thick late Miocene sedimentary Trachilos section from the island of Crete that contains the potentially oldest hominin footprints. The section is characterized by normal magnetic polarity. New and published foraminifera biostratigraphy results suggest an age of the section within the Mediterranean biozo...
Article
Full-text available
Environmental and biotic responses to early Eocene hyperthermal events in the southwest Pacific are critical for global paleoclimate reconstructions during Cenozoic greenhouse intervals, but detailed multidisciplinary studies are generally missing from this time and location. Eocene carbonate sediments were recovered during International Ocean Disc...
Article
We present paleo- and rock magnetic results from a well-dated, 21 m-thick, Late Pleistocene continental sedimentary section located in southern Germany. Rock magnetic measurements reveal a complex magnetic mineralogy dominated by low coercivity minerals likely related to single domain biogenic magnetite and biogenic or early diagenetic greigite. In...
Article
Full-text available
Paleogeographic reconstructions largely rely on paleomagnetic data, mostly in the form of paleomagnetic poles. Compilations of poles are used to determine so called apparent polar wander paths (APWPs), which capture the motion through time of a particular location with respect to an absolute reference frame such as the Earth's spin axis. Paleomagne...
Article
Full-text available
Voluminous early to middle Pleistocene pyroclastic flow deposits were generated from Mount Aragats (Aragats Volcanic Province, AVP), one of the largest volcanoes in the Arabia-Eurasia continental collision zone. Here we report paleomagnetic results, in combination with anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS) analysis, from 31 outcrops belonging...
Article
The Varignano section (Trento province, northern Italy) provides an exceptional opportunity for a direct correlation between shallow benthic (SB) zones and standard calcareous plankton zones at the Bartonian–Priabonian transition (middle–late Eocene). This transition has attracted great attention by biostratigraphers in the last decades in searchin...
Article
Full-text available
Data from International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Expedition 371 reveal vertical movements of 1–3 km in northern Zealandia during early Cenozoic subduction initiation in the western Pacific Ocean. Lord Howe Rise rose from deep (~1 km) water to sea level and subsided back, with peak uplift at 50 Ma in the north and between 41 and 32 Ma in the s...
Article
Full-text available
The Middle Eocene Climatic Optimum (MECO) was an unusual global warming event that interrupted the long‐term Eocene cooling trend ca. 40 Ma. Here we present new high‐resolution bulk and benthic isotope records from South Atlantic ODP Site 702 to characterize the MECO at a high latitude setting. The MECO event, including early and peak warming as we...
Article
Full-text available
International Ocean Discovery Program (IODP) Expedition 371 (Tasman Frontier subduction initiation and Paleogene climate) was designed (1) to investigate the timing and dynamic of the Tonga-Kermadec subduction initiation and (2) to understand regional oceanography and climate in the southwest Pacific during the Cenozoic, in particular the Eocene. A...
Article
The Cretaceous–Paleogene marine sedimentary succession exposed in the banks of the middle reaches of the Waipara River (referred to as mid-Waipara), north Canterbury, New Zealand, has been the subject of several high-profile studies of Paleogene paleoclimate over the past decade. It is one of relatively few sections globally where a multi-proxy app...
Article
Full-text available
The Rhenodanubian Flysch zone (RDF) is a Lower Cretaceous–lower Palaeocene turbidite succession extending for ∼500 km from the Danube at Vienna to the Rhine Valley (Eastern Alps). It consists of calcareous and siliciclastic turbidite systems deposited in a trench abyssal plain. The age of deposition has been estimated through micropalaeontologic da...
Article
Full-text available
We conducted an integrated magneto-biostratigraphic study of a 37 m-thick composite section exposed at two sites near Nouméa (New Caledonia). The section contains a transition from pelagic micrite to terrigenous-rich calciturbidites. This transition, observed regionally in coeval records of New Caledonia, marks a shift from pelagic sedimentation on...

The most viscous volcanic melts and the largest explosive eruptions on our planet consist of calcalkaline rhyolites. These eruptions have the potential to influence global climate. The eruptive products are commonly very crystal-poor and highly degassed, yet the magma is mostly stored as crystal mushes containing small amounts of interstitial melt...

Several early Eocene hyperthermals have been recently investigated and characterized in terms of temperature anomalies and oceanographic changes. The effects of these climatic perturbations on biotic communities are much less constrained. Here we present new records from the Terche section (northeastern Italy) that, for the first time, integrates d...

Full-text available
We present records of stable carbon and oxygen isotopes, CaCO3 content, and changes in calcareous nannofossil assemblages across an 81 m thick section of upper Paleocene–lower Eocene marine sedimentary rocks now exposed along the Cicogna Stream in northeast Italy. The studied stratigraphic section represents sediment accumulation in a bathyal hemip...
Article
Carbonate depositional models are often informed by the study of platforms of good lateral continuity and sizable thickness, because of their significance in petroleum geology. However, spatially restricted and more ephemeral carbonate accumulations can be an important but frequently overlooked component of otherwise siliciclastic-dominated or mixe...

Within upstream reaches of incised valleys, fluvial sedimentation occurs where it is controlled by interaction between climate and tectonics. This study focuses on a Plio-Pleistocene fluvial paleovalley, which drained the northeastern margin of Siena basin (northern Apennines, Italy). Valley filling resulted from the interaction between river drain...

Full-text available
The Hellenides fold-and-thrust range comprises two subparallel ophiolite belts of Triassic to Jurassic age - the external ophiolite belt (e.g., Mirdita, Pindos, Argolis) in the west, and the internal ophiolite belt in the east - broadly separated by the continental crust units of the Korabi-Pelagonian Zone. It is still a matter of debate whether th...

In the lowermost Eocene sedimentary record of Ocean Drilling Program Site 1262 (Leg 208, Walvis Ridge, South Atlantic Ocean), the presence of a ∼53-kyr-long normal polarity event has been recorded within the ∼2.55-Myr-long reverse polarity Chron C24r (∼53.3–55.9 Ma) and termed Palaeocene–Eocene magnetic reversal (PEMR). The origin of the PEMR has b...

We describe a scenario of climate forcing on sedimentation recorded in the late Paleocene–early Eocene Cicogna marine section from the Belluno Basin (NE Italy). Previously published magneto-biostratigraphic data revealed that the ~81 m Cicogna section extends from Chron C25r to Chron C23r spanning the NP7/NP8-NP12 nannofossil Zones (~52.2–56.6 Ma)....
Article
The available oxygen isotope records indicate a long-term warming trend from the late Paleocene through the early Eocene (ca. 59-52 Ma) that peaked at the Early Eocene Climatic Optimum (EECO) (Zachos et al., 2001). This trend was interrupted by at least two or more prominent carbon cycle perturbations, the PETM at ca. 55.5 Ma and the Eocene thermal...
Article
Full-text available
During the late Paleocene-early Eocene (~60 Ma to 50 Ma), Earth's climate experienced a warming trend that culminated with the Early Eocene Climatic Optimum (EECO). The EECO was characterized by warm conditions at even extreme high latitudes, subdued latitudinal temperature gradients, and virtually nonexistent polar ice sheets. The early Paleogene...
