The Jurassic of the Peniche Peninsula (Portugal): Scientific, Educational and Science Popularization Relevance

Abstract : The Peniche Peninsula shows the most continuous carbonate sedimentary succession of the Jurassic in Portugal. In this paper, supported by several important scientific arguments from the different domains of Sedimentary Geology, we highlight this locality as a focal point to understand the Early Jurassic time interval. Among several other themes we emphasize the definition of the Toarcian GSSP, the discussion around the Early Toarcian oceanic anoxic event and the organic-rich deposition occurred in the Sinemurian-Pliensbachian of the Peniche Peninsula section. These key geological themes have been the focus of significant educational/scientific outreach, involving Geology promotion activities directed towards different audiences, on a local and international scale.
