The transition from the Late Devonian to the Early Carboniferous was marked by tectonic events, environmental change and global oceanic biological turnover that influenced sedimentary regimes. The end-Devonian faunal extinction event, for example, eliminated most of the reef building taxa, which, coupled with an increasing rate of subsidence in response to the opening of the Paleo–Tethys and a sea-ward shift of carbonate factories during the Lower Carboniferous, led to the formation of extensive carbonate ramp platforms along the Laurasian and Gondwanan margins. This development has already been reported from the western Gondwanan and southern Laurasian margins but not from northern to north-eastern Gondwanan margin yet. We aim to improve the knowledge on the main factors controlling the development and growth of carbonate ramps during the Lower Carboniferous by examining the Alborz basin along the northern margin of Gondwana. The Lower Carboniferous Mobarak Formation records the development of a storm-sensitive pervasive carbonate factory on the southern Paleo-Tethys passive margin following the opening of the Paleo-Tethys Ocean into the Alborz basin along the northern margin of Gondwana. Four outcrops in the central Alborz Mountains were studied: the Jaban, Aroo, Shahmirzad and Labnesar sections. Four events have been described as the principal factors controlling carbonate platform evolution in the Lower Carboniferous: (1) A transgression linked to global temperature rise in the Early Tournaisian (Middle Hastarain) resulted in the formation of thick-bedded argillaceous limestones. This interval is represented by massive beds of dark mudstones–wackestones to packstones that laterally interfinger with finely laminated limestones, and with bed thickness ranging on the centimeter to meter scale. This interval correlates with Lower Tournaisian nodular to argillaceous limestones of the Moravia Basin (Czech Republic), the Rhenish Slate Mountains (Poland) and the Dinant Basin (Belgium). (2) Late Hastarian–Early Ivorian glaciations were identified in Southern Gondwana but had not been evidenced in Northern Gondwana yet. This glaciation regime is recorded through the appearance of inner-ramp channel-form facies in mid– and outer-ramp settings. (3) During Late Ivorian–Early Visean?, a differentiation block faulting regime along the basin’s margin caused uplift of the westernmost parts of the Alborz basin and resulted in a sub-marine collapse in the eastern part of the central basin. This caused vast sub-aerial exposure and brecciation the top of the Mobarak Formation at the Jaban and Aroo sections. The sub-marine collapse was recorded through the occurrence of Zoophycos bearing fine-grained limestones in the top of the Labnesar and Shahmirzad sections. (4) Tectonic activity that coincided with considerable and abrupt sea level falls as an indirect consequence of the Viséan and Serpukhovian glaciations phases. This progressive sea level drop led to the stagnation of the carbonate factory, which is expressed as an erosional surface at the top of the Mobarak Formation. [less ▲]

Magnetic susceptibility (MS) and biostratigraphy have been used to correlate better the reference sections of Belgian Tournaisian, the Rivage road and railway sections and the Gendron-Celles railway section. These 200 m thick time-equivalent sections are about sixty kilometres apart and belong to two different sedimentation areas: a shallow ramp setting for Rivage (Condroz Sedimentation Area, Hance et al., 2001) and a subsiding area for Gendron (Dinant Sedimentation Area). The sedimentological model shows that both sections are characterized by a bioclastic dominated sedimentation (crinoids-peloids-algae assemblages), interrupted by more argillaceous facies related to rapid sea-level rises (crinoids-brachiopods-bryozoans assemblages). Accommodation was significantly higher in the DSA and allowed the development of Waulsortian buildups during the Ivorian. Variations of magnetic susceptibility (MS) seem to be related to fluctuations in detrital input and carbonate productivity. MS evolution with palaeogeography can be integrated in the Da Silva et al. (2009a) model for the Devonian ramp system: external ramp settings have low carbonate productivity, low water agitation and high MS, whereas more proximal environments are characterized by higher carbonate productivity, higher water agitation and lower MS. Carbonate buildups show the lowest MS and highest productivity. MS curves are in agreement with the 3rd-order sequential interpretation. Lowstand system tracts (LST) show the highest MS values while transgressive system tracts (TST) are characterized by decreasing values and highstand system tracts/ falling stage system tracts (HST/FSST) by the lowest values.

The Visé–Maastricht sedimentation area (VSA) is situated at the eastern end of the Brabant Massif and suffered block-faulting tectonics during Lower Carboniferous time. The south edge of the VSA, the area corresponding now to the vicinity of Visé, comprised three main tectonic blocks: the Hermalle-sous-Argenteau, Souvré and Bombaye blocks. They were bounded to south by the Booze–Val-Dieu block. To the north, in the vicinity of Maastricht, blocks are not well differ- entiated and are referred to as the Maastricht block system. From the end of the Tournaisian, the latter evolved into a rap- idly subsiding graben, recording mainly debris fl ows and limestone turbidites, whereas the southern blocks remained rela- tively high. Through much of Lower Carboniferous time, they were emergent, but during high eustatic sea levels, they were fl ooded and covered by limestone deposits. The differences in the nature and the age of the deposits between blocks result from the interaction between block-faulting and eustacy. In the VSA, the Upper Devonian and Lower Tournaisian (Hastarian) deposits are similar to those known in the north part of the Namur-Dinant Basin. But from the late Tournaisian (Ivorian), the uplift of the Booze–Val-Dieu block prevented all connections with the Namur-Dinant Basin and the VSA became linked with the Campine Basin. The Souvré block subsided from the latest Givetian to the late Frasnian and recorded a thick middle Frasnian limestone series, but was later emergent, so much that karstic cavities developed. The Souvré block was submerged for a short time at the top of the Tournaisian, during the very high highstand (HST) corresponding to eustatic sequence 4, and the caves fi lled up with sediments. The Hermalle-sous-Argenteau and the Bombaye blocks, situated respectively west and east of the Souvré block, evolved in the same way during the late Devonian. They subsided slightly from the earliest Tournaisian to the late Viséan (Warnan- tian), but usually remained emergent and recorded deposits only during times of high eustatic levels corresponding to the early Tournaisian (for the Bombaye block), the end of the Tournaisian (HST of sequence 4), the end of the early Viséan (HST of sequence 6), then the late Viséan (HST of sequences 9 and 10). In its southern part, the Hermalle-sous-Argenteau block recorded also lowermost Viséan limestones correlated with the highstand of the eustatic sequence 5, probably as a result of the tilting of the block to the south at this time.
