The Late Paleozoic Ice Age is recorded in the Paraná Basin as glacial deposits, deformational features and ice-related erosional landforms of the Itararé Group. Erosional landforms are often employed to build paleogeographic models that depict the location of ice masses and paleo ice-flow directions. Tis paper provides a review of the literature an...

Most ice-age diamictites were emplaced in basinal settings by non-subglacial processes. Nonetheless, the occurrence of diamictite in rock successions is widely employed to estimate ice extent and delimit glacial growth-decay cycles that serve as background for paleoclimate modeling. We report a cyclic diamictite-mudstone succession from the Bashkir...

Carboniferous glaciogenic strata (Itararé Gp.) in the southernmost Paraná Basin, Brazil exhibit soft-sediment deformation features previously interpreted as glaciotectonism. These sediments were studied in detail to confirm that they were deformed by ice and to assess the nature of the glaciation, depositional environments, and paleoclimate in this...

A long-term global cooling driven by supercontinental reconfiguration and colonization of land by vascular plants culminated in the Phanerozoic's longest, most severe and widespread icehouse epoch. The Late Paleozoic Ice Age spanned approximately a 106-Myr interval from the latest Devonian, throughout the Carboniferous, to its demise in the late Pe...

Highly complex glacial dynamics produced an intricate mosaic of glacial strata and erosional landforms throughout Gondwana during the late Paleozoic Ice Age (LPIA; 362-256 Ma), the Phanerozoic's longest and most severe icehouse interval. An extensive gap in understanding the extension of ice masses in western Gondwana remains due to glacial success...

The stratigraphic architecture of fjords is complex as it is controlled by ice dynamics, sediment supply, relative sea-level fluctuations, and topography. Glacially-transported debris are prone to failure and to be carried downslope to the fjord floor through the entire spectrum of mass movements and density flows, as the submarine landscape moves...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Determining the ice dynamics of deep-time glaciations is limited by the scarcity of well-preserved subglacial erosional features and their irregular distribution. In particular, small-scale erosional features known as s-forms that are subglacially sculpted in bedrock by water and/or ice are rarely preserved from the pre-Cenozoic record. A detailed...

A Era Glacial Neopaleozoica (LPIA – Late Paleozoic Ice Age) é representada na Bacia do Paraná pelo Grupo Itararé, cujos estratos fornecem um registro glacial dominado por sucessões glácio-marinhas e raros intervalos deformados por geleiras. Depósitos glaciotectonizados possuem macroestruturas como dobras, falhas e zonas de cisalhamento geradas sub...

The Late Paleozoic Ice Age (LPIA; 362 to 256 Ma) left a record in the Gondwanan sedimentary basins as glacial successions and ice-carved features. In the Paraná Basin the glaciation is recorded in the Itararé Group and on its basal unconformity that contains micro to mega scale erosive features. Diamictites and glacial erosive landforms such as str...
Article
The late Paleozoic Ice Age (LPIA) was one of Earth's most important Phanerozoic climatic events lasting for over 100 Mys. Despite its importance, its history is controversial with two hypotheses that portray glaciation differently (Fig. 1). Traditional views characterize the LPIA as a continuous glacial event that lasted from the Middle Mississippi...

The Paraná Basin, Brazil and the Chaco-Paraná Basin, Uruguay both contain sedimentary records that are critical to reconstructing late Paleozoic ice centers in central Gondwana. The orientations of subglacial landforms and glaciotectonic structures suggest that late Paleozoic glacial deposits in the eastern Chaco-Paraná Basin and the southernmost P...

The Itararé Group and time equivalent Aquidauana Formation represent the Late Paleozoic Ice Age in the Paraná Basin. These sedimentary rocks provide an extensive glacial record which contains deformed intervals interpreted as glaciotectonites, with features such as folds, thrusts and subhorizontal shear zones, which could be produced sub-or proglac...
Conference Paper
The Late Paleozoic Ice Age spanned approximately a 106-million-year interval from the latest Devonian, throughout the Carboniferous, to its demise in the late Permian. Asynchronous ice centers waxed and waned across Gondwana sculpturing landforms and leaving a sedimentary record within the late Paleozoic sedimentary basins. In the Kaokoveld region,...

The demise of the Late Paleozoic Ice Age has been hypothesized as diachronous, occurring first in western South America and progressing eastward across Africa and culminating in Australia over an ~60 m.y. period, suggesting tectonic forcing mechanisms that operate on time scales of 106 yr or longer. We test this diachronous deglaciation hypothesis...

The location, longevity, and geographic extent of late Paleozoic ice centers in west-central Gondwana remain ambiguous. Paleovalleys on the Rio Grande do Sul Shield of southernmost Brazil have previously been interpreted as fjords carved by outlet glaciers that originated in Africa and emptied into the Paraná Basin (Brazil). In this study, the sedi...

In this contribution we explore recent advances from ongoing research on the interplay between tectonics and climate in the evolution of the Paraná Basin from the mid-late Carboniferous to the earliest Permian, a time characterized by intense climatic and tectonic instabilities in SW Gondwana. Latest Devonian to Pennsylvanian uplifting on the easte...

O clímax da era glacial neopaleozoica ocorreu no Pensilvaniano (Neocarbonífero), cujos registros acham-se em bacias de vários continentes. Por outro lado, registros eopermianos de glaciação, que testemunham o final da era glacial, são relativamente mais raros e menos compreendidos dentro do contexto paleogeográfico gondwânico. Neste trabalho é anal...
Conference Paper
Ambientes de sedimentação situados sob e na frente de geleiras (subglaciais e glácio-marginais) estão entre os sítios deposicionais mais complexos conhecidos devido aos impactos das flutuações da margem da geleira no acúmulo, erosão e deformação da pilha sedimentar. Embora depósitos formados nesses ambientes sejam escassos e pouco preservados no re...

A Era Glacial Neopaleozoica (LPIA – Late Paleozoic Ice Age) afetou o paleocontinente Gondwana durante o intervalo Permiano-Carbonífero, quando este encontrava-se geograficamente posicionado em altas latitudes no hemisfério sul.

A Era Glacial Neopaleozoica afetou o paleocontinente Gondwana durante os períodos Carbonífero e Permiano, quando este se encontrava geograficamente localizado em uma região de altas latitudes no hemisfério sul. Atualmente, há duas hipóteses a respeito da evolução da Era Glacial Neopaleozoica no paleocontinente Gondwana. A tradicional assume que uma...

Superfícies estriadas produzidas pelo gelo têm sido utilizadas para inferir as direções de movimento de geleiras e a extensão geográfica de antigas glaciações, dando base à elaboração de modelos paleoclimáticos e paleogeográficos. Quanto à natureza do substrato, existem duas categorias principais de superfícies glaciais. O primeiro tipo consiste de...

The late Paleozoic glacial record has been described as the only ancient analog suitable to predict how climate change may affect modern Earth's ecosystems. By consequence, glacial to postglacial successions of Gondwana are the object of renewed scientific interest. One main concern is the establishment of accurate chonostratigraphic frameworks via absolute dating and biostratigraphy in order to get more realistic paleoclimatic and paleogeographic models of the late Paleozoic glaciations. However, the correct identification of glacial/cool-climate phenomena in the sedimentary record is still a highly unsolved problem that impact greatly in the paleoclimatic reconstructions. The goal of this project is to reevaluate well-known glacial localities of SW Gondwana under an updated sedimentological perspective of glacial processes and environments. Under this scope, major objectives are: 1) to determine the size and thermal regime of the late Paleozoic glaciers based on facies associations and exhumed ice-related landforms; 2) to distinct subglacial from non-subglacial ice-related landforms and evaluate its impact on paleo ice flow directions; 3) to characterize the signature of growing and decay of the late Paleozoic glaciers in multiple time-stratigraphic hierarchies; 4) to provide criteria to distinct among subglacial, glacially-influenced and non-glacial diamictites. The Paraná Basin is chosen as the main object of study because of its former key location between ice centers of Argentina and glaciated highlands of western Africa.
