KLIPPE DES ANNES,Cool Water carbonates
Located on Massif Bauges & Giffre the KLIPPE is starting with alternation of continental marls-argileaous-alernation with finely laminated dolomited refeclting a decrease in accomodation (InfraLIas:Norien?3 order?).Then established a system of Tidal creek with carboneaceous horizon with fine mudstone.Further up, a deepening up sequence of 3 order? cycle is highlighted by incresing recurrent HCS carbonates preserved sedimentary features becoming to noduluous & siliceous mudstones.
This type of system are classified as HETEROZOAN Association as desbribe by James classification on Cool Water carbonates (SEPM Publ.) a; this system is a ramp type carbonate shelf.
