Abstract
  • This paper presents the results of a high-resolution analysis of Upper Cretaceous shallow-water limestones in the northeast sector of the Lepini Mountains (Central Apennines, Italy) that belong to the Latium-Abruzzi platform domain. The studied succession is entirely referred to as the \"Accordiella conica & Rotorbinella scarsellai Biozone\". The analyzed Coniacian-Campanian succession is primarily characterized by three lithofacies associations (LF-A, LF-B, LF-C) deposited on an open shelf. The intertidal and shallow-subtidal environments are characterized by mudstone to wackestone and laminated bindstone (LF-C), whereas in the low to moderate energy environments of the inner shelf there developed rudist biostrome (rudist pillarstone) and rudist rudstone to floatstone (LF-A). A lithofacies association dominated by cross-bedded grainstone (LF-B) represents the reworking of bioclastic grains (rudist fragments) derived from the areas of the shelf colonized by rudist biostrome; lime-sand shoals related to storm channels passed into submarine dunes in an open-shelf setting. Correlation of the five investigated stratigraphic sections shows how the recognized LF are laterally associated to form a facies mosaic over a few hundred meters. The stratigraphic architecture shows five intervals (I-V) each of which is dominated by one or two LF. Interval I is intensely dolomitized. The following intervals (II and III) record a gradual increase in hydrodynamic energy as evidenced by the presence of rudist biostromes passing upward into cross-bedded grainstone. An increase in mud-supported textures in the interval IV suggests more restricted conditions, which were terminated by a period of emergence. More open-marine conditions in the final interval (V) are shown by the dominance of LF-A and LF-B. ¬© 2014 Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. (literal)
