Turritelline mass accumulations from the Lower Miocene of southern Germany: implications for tidal currents and nutrient transport within the North Alpine Foreland Basin

James H. Nebelsick, Michael Rasser, Olaf Höltke, Jeffrey R. Thompson & Ulrich Bieg
The mass occurrence of turritelline gastropod shells from the Lower Miocene of southern Germany allows for detailed studies of their palaeoecology, transport mechanisms, preservation potentials and the reconstruction of nutrient regimes. Changes in the fabric of the gastropod‐dominated beds are used to reconstruct a generally deepening environment corresponding to the Lower Miocene transgression within the Upper Molasse Sea of the North Alpine Foreland Basin. The sedimentary succession ranges from chaotically arranged, densely packed and near‐shore...
