Paleogeografia e tettonica

Paleogeografia
Argovian Basin,
Tipo di protolito
  • sedimentaria
Condizioni di formazione
Beckenfazies («argovien» ; represent the marginal part of the carbonate platform). Most of the beds are carbonate-rich tempestites which contain some shallow-water material. Further up, several packages of limestone beds can be distinguished; 42 m of micrite contain shallow-water biodetritus, commonly enriched in nests which are of biogenic or physical origin. The content in bioclasts steadily increases upward, pointing to a progradation of the platform. (Wetzel & Strasser 2001).

Gygi R. A. (2000): Annotated index of lithostratigraphic units currently used in the Upper Jurassic of northern Switzerland. , Eclogae geol. Helv. 93/1, 125-146

p.130: Geissberg Member (Moesch 1867) ; Member of the Villigen Formation The Geissberg lithostratigraphical unit (Geissbergschichten) was named by Moesch (1857. p. 57) and then encompassed all the limestone members included in the Villigen Formation sensu Gygi & Persoz (1986. p. 407) between the Effingen Member below and the Baden Member above. Moesch (1867 p. 145) restricted the unit to the rank of what is today a member and conceived it as the thickly bedded micritic limestones between the marly Effingen Member below and the glauconitic Crenularis Member above. According to Moesch (1857 p. 57). the cliff above the southern slope at the western end of Mt. Geissberg west of Villigen. Canton Aargau. must be considered to be the type locality of what is at present the Geissberg Member. This cliff is now called Chamerenfelsen and is located at coordinates 655.000/264.400. LK 1069 Frick. The thickness of the Geissberg Member at Mt. Geissberg near Villigen in the large quarry on the north slope of Mt. Geissberg, west of Gabenchopf near Villigen, is between 15 and 20 m. This quarry (coordinates ca. 656.650/265.050. LK 1070 Baden) is now considered to be the reference section of the Geissberg Member. An entire section of the member is also in the natural outcrop of the gully south of the part of the village Villigen called Ob Chilen. This is section RG 63 that is schematically represented in Gygi (1969. Pl. 19). The great thickness of the Geissberg Member near Baden (Gygi 1969 Pl. 19) is exceptional. The macrofossils ofthe Geissberg Member are mostly bivalves, but large ammonites of the genus Lithacosphinctes occur too (Mühlberg. 1908. p. 43). The Geissberg Member is delimited in the west by the Olten Member. In the northeast it grades into the lower Hornbuck Member (Fig.1).
