Early Cretaceous Tethyan Stratigraphy

The broad objective of this project is to build a detailed knowledge of the Early Cretaceous stratigraphy in the Tethyan realm. The approach will be systematic through the integration of basin reference sections (stratotypes), basin or platform control sections, biostratigraphic data, and sequence stratigraphy (plus any information which should support correlations).

Geology of the Middle East oil province 

This site focuses mainly on the stratigraphy and the paleontology of Middle East oil province (that is the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Oman, etc.).

North Africa GeoNet

This site aims to provide a platform for the exchange of ideas and information about geological research and exploration in North Africa. Geoscientists from all institutions – academia and industry – are invited to participate.

North Cretaceous Fossils  

A site dedicated to Cretaceous fossils from the U.S.A. and around the world.



Le Crétacé inferieur de la Costa Blanca au Nord-Est d'Alicante (Espagne) [French]

The Busot-Altea area (NE of Alicante, Spain) is located in the eastern end of the External Zones of the Betic Cordilleras. During the Early Cretaceous times, it has been a particularly unstable area. B. Granier (1987) gave a personal interpretation which has slightly changed today. This site which presently includes 50 figures or photos offers a fine opportunity for a virtual field trip in southeastern Spain, next to Benidorm beaches.

Reinold Leinfelder's personal page

According to Reinold Leinfelder himself, " If you have nothing else to do and if you like to browse the web at random, just use the links connected with these informations. They will definitely help you spend quite some time in the web! ". My feelings are quite different: " From this page, you will find multiple hypertext links to valuable mainly Jurassic- and reef- dedicated web pages. You should definitively pay a visit! ".


  • Ammonites

  • Fossils of the Gault Clay and Folkestone Beds of Kent, U.K.

    This site is dedicated to the fossils of the Lower Cretaceous Albian (Gault Clay and Folkestone Beds) in the county of Kent, South-East England. In particular the beautifully preserved ammonite faunas of the Gault Clay are illustrated and identified.

  • Corals

  • Catalogue of Cretaceous corals

    Information on a printed serial which gives a systematic overview of the Cretaceous corals described since 1777. Except for additional notes on localities and taxa, the data are taken from the literature and possess an objective status.

  • Rudists

  • Cretaceous rudist bivalves (Mollusca: Hippuritacea)

    The philosophy of this taxonomic data base on rudist bivalves is to compile only published information, because a mingling of published information and unpublished (and probably wrong) opinions of the author or others would not serve objectivity. Nevertheless, it will be regularly updated with modern, published data.
