Synopsis top ↑

The first volume of three starts out by presenting a synoptic overview of the whole Triassic period. The second part appraises the Early, Middle and Late Triassic. The third part considers regional characteristics and problems of Triassic rocks from Europe, North and South Africa, Eastern Europe, Svalbard, Asia and North and South America. The papers are regionally arranged and contain data and results of broad interest, far exceeding the regional aspects.

Central Europe is the type region of the classic epicontinental Triassic as defined by Alberti (1834), also referred to as the Germanic Triassic. Almost 50% of all the papers are in this section. The section South and Southeastern Europe, i.e. the northwestern Peri-Tethys, contains overview papers from Spain and Hungary, and draws attention to the important outcrops in Bulgaria and their faunas. Several contributions in the Africa section point to the important epicontinental deposits of the southwestern Peri-Tethys. Papers in the section on Eastern Europe, Svalbard and Asia cover a vast area, as exemplified by the sequence stratigraphic comparison of Svalbard and East Siberia. Other papers address paleontological and biostratigraphic aspects.

The Newark System of North America is described as a prime example of astronomically induced cyclicity. The redbeds of the Southwest are shown to be well suited for sequence stratigraphic interpretations and investigations of vertebrates. Another paper ably describes the South American connection to Gondwanaland, and corresponding shifts in climate and habitat for flora and fauna.

The purpose of these Proceedings is to enable fellow researchers from the information presented and, so that over the next decade or so, various aspects seen but murkily at present can be worked on. It is hoped that the variety of articles presented here will provide a framework for further investigation of the Triassic.

Cet ouvrage, réparti en 3 volumes, rassemble les 52 contributions retenues à la suite d'un symposium international tenu en 1998 à Halle (Allemagne). Près des 2/3 de l'ouvrage, le volume 1 et une partie du volume 2, traitent surtout des aspects stratigraphiques et paléontologiques du faciès germanique d'Europe centrale, essentiellement de l'Allemagne; le volume 2 est complété par des travaux sur le Trias d'Espagne, de Hongrie et de Roumanie, ainsi que sur l'Afrique du Nord. Le dernier volume regroupe des études portant sur l'Afrique du Sud, l'Amérique du Nord, et sur des régions peu connues comme la Sibérie, le Caucase, le Kazakhstan, les îles de la mer de Barents et le Sud du Brésil.
De cet épais ouvrage on retiendra d'abord l'actualisation des connaissances sur le Trias d'Allemagne. La longue histoire des études de surface et les abondantes données de subsurface permettent d'établir finement la géométrie et l'évolution tectono-sédimentaire des bassins triasiques. L'emploi des méthodes de la i stratigraphique séquentielle et les corrélations fournies notamment par les palynofaciès, l'étude des Vertébrés et leurs traces aboutissent à une chronologie plus précise et à la reconstitution de l'eustatisme et des climats au cours du dépôts des faciès germaniques.
La synthèse à l'échelle de l'Afrique du Nord est également bienvenue. De la synthèse sur le Trias continental de l'Afrique du Sud, on attendra en pacurer le cadre géodynamique en compassion du Bassin du Kamo. Le Trias marin de de l'Est de la Sibérie sera pour beaucoup une découverte, de même pour celui du Kakzakhstan.
Cet ouvrage présente l'inconvénient majeur des actes de symposium: les thèmes aboyas dépendent des participants. Ainsi, des secteurs géogmphiques sont absents: aucun article sur l'Asie du Sud-Est l'Australie, l'Antarctique,le même sur la France - il est vrai que le Groupe Français du Dias s'est fait oublier. Rien non plus sur l'activité magmatique pourtant imposante au Trias. En conclusion, un ouvrage indispensable pour qui veut connaître l'état des lieux sur le faciès germanique d'Allemagne et les successions triasiques tu de quelque contrées lointaines.
