Facies distribution on a carbonate ramp controlled by underground relief and subsidence (Late Eocene of the eastern Alpine Foreland Basin)

 

2. Problem

The autochthonous Late Eocene of the Alpine-Carpathian Foreland Basin is part of a laterally extensive belt of platform carbonates. They are reported from France, Switzerland, Bavaria, and Upper Austria. Although only known from deep wells, the sediments in question provide the unique possibility to study undisturbed vertical and lateral successions of highly diverse algal limestone facies, as well as the factors influencing the facies pattern distribution.
