Abstract
The analysis of the type-sections of Tor Formation and Carnitza Formation i n the neighbourhood of Raibl/Cave del Predil (Tarvisio area, Julian Alps, I taly) allows a better definition of the Carnian stratigraphic and sequence stratigraphic framework in this classical area. Ammonoids and palynomorphs confine the age of the Conzen Formation and of most of the Tor Formation to the Julian, while the uppermost Tor Formation, the Carnitza Formation and the base of the Dolomia Principale are Tuvalian in age. In the Tarvisio are a, a margin-foreslope system of the Dolomia Principale, interfingering with basinal sediments (Carnitza Formation), is exceptionally well preserved at a seismic-scale. This setting allows a better comprehension of the start-u p of the Dolomia Principale carbonate platform.
