Abstract

Reveals a thick sedimentary fill partitioned by six seismic and sedimentary discontinuities which are either gaps in the sedimentary record or marked changes in lithology. Dated between the Mesozoic and the upper Pleistocene, they can be interpreted in terms of lake level variations caused by tectonic or climatic events. There is an abridged English version. -English summary
