Contourites and reworked turbidites from the Eocene to Miocene deposits of the Lefkara and Pakhna Formations (Cyprus): distinguish criteria and implications
September 2022 – Cyprus
Organised by: Hernandez-Molina, F.J. (Royal Holloway University of London), Hüneke, H. (Universität Greifswald), Rodríguez-Tovar, F.J. (Universidad de Granada), Llave, E. (Instituto Geológico y Minero de España), Mena, A. (University of Vigo), Miguez-Salas, O. (Universidad de Granada)
During this field trip, we will visit key field localities that showcase some of the best-known examples of ancient bottom current deposits in the Lefkara and Pakhna Formations (Cyprus). Sedimentary facies, ichnological information, microfacies and sedimentary models will be discussed and associated with analogue deposits in modern/recent deep-water environments and compared to other deep-water deposits (as reworked turbidites, turbidites, mass transport and pelagic/hemipelagic deposits) in the same outcrops, and their conceptual significance will be discussed.

A day field trip to the Siccar Point outcrop, a famous example of an angular unconformity (Hutton unconformity).
