JK2018

Muséum d'Histoire naturelle (MHN) de Genève

December 5, 2018 – December 7, 2018


The aim of the "International Meeting AROUND the Jurassic-Cretaceous Boundary" is to discuss eustatical, biological, physiographical, geochemical, tectonic, ... events at/near the boundary (i.e., over an interval of time spanning the Kimmeridgian to the Hauterivian, with a special focus on the Tithonian-Valanginian strata).

Selected papers from the meeting will be published in "Volumina Jurassica" (Editor in Chief: Prof. Andrzej Wierzbowki) and in "Cretaceous Research" (Editor in Chief: Dr Eduardo Koutsoukos). There will also be possibilities to submit some manuscripts to "Revue de Paléobiologie" (Editor in Chief: Dr Lionel Cavin) and in "Carnets Geol." (Editor in Chief: Prof. Bruno Granier).
