Books about Jurassic

Advances in Jurassic Research: 4th International Congress Jurassic Stratigraphy and Geology, Argentina, 1994
Research in the field of Jurassic stratigraphy has been increasingly active up to the current date. This volume aims to present new results, as well as to suggest areas for further research work and new and/or different stratigraphical tools, such as sequence stratigraphy. Formal questions on Jurassic stratigraphy are also discussed, such as fine definitions of the boundaries of stage, series and the system itself. The topics covered include: invited lectures, biostratigraphy and correlation; sedinentary geology and palaeoecology; regional stratigraphy and tectonics, magnetostratigraphy and palaeomagnetism and correlation of Jurassic events in South America.
The Jurassic of the Circum-Pacific (World and Regional Geology)
In this work, sixty specialists assembled to discuss the regional occurrences of Jurassic rocks around the Pacific rim. The tectonic setting, stratigraphical sequences, and fossil assemblages of the region are covered in detail; regional biozones based on palynonorphs, protistans, plants and invertebrates are defined; and super-regional standard zones based on ammonites are established. Numerous tables are used to document and illustrate intra- and intercontinental circum-Pacific correlations, and a large atlas illustrates more than 1,000 circum-Pacific index fossils.
Magnetostratigraphy of the Upper Jurassic: Magnetic Polarity Zonation and European Paleomagnetic Poles
Over the last couple decades, extended research has been conducted to resolve questions about the Jurassic, a time when the Pangaea was split into new continents and the present Pacific plate was formed. However, the Pacific spreading recorded by the pre-M25 marine magnetic anomalies remained uncalibrated due to the incomplete magnetic polarity results from some Middle and Upper Jurassic outcrops. In addition, the paleolatitude and rotation of the European plate during this period remained uncertain due to sparse and insufficient paleomagnetic data. This book verifies the above mentioned problems by determining the movement of the European plate, Pacific spreading rates, duration of the biozones and inter-regional correlations of paleomarkers for the Upper Jurassic, based on an interdisciplinary research from the continental Europe and British Isles, which combines magnetostratigraphy, paleomagnetism, biostratigraphy, marine magnetic anomaly records and cyclostratigraphy. Presented results should be beneficial particularly for geoscientists, whose research is focused on the Jurassic but also other periods in the Earth history.
Jurassic Environments (Cambridge Earth Science Series)
Studies of the Jurassic period are greatly helped by the high degree of stratigraphic control provided by the ubiquitous ammonites. Although this work, originally publisjed in 1975, is not a study of stratigraphy as such, a short chapter on this topic is included to provide a framework for environmental interpretation. The main goal of this book is to review in detail the advances which existed at the time in the interpretation of Jurassic facies in the classical European and American deposits and to then apply this knowledge to illuminate more general topics such as the fluctuation in land/sea distribution and the nature of the Jurassic climate and biogeography. There is also an account of plate tectonics and igneous activity during the period. A comprehensive bibliography is provided, which includes the important stratigraphic literature published from 1956 to 1975.
