Lofer cycles are metre-scale peritidal-subtidal (lagoonal) cycles within platform carbonates. Based on observations of Upper Triassic sequences of Lofer cyclicity in the Transdanubian Range, this paper summarizes fundamental features of the basic facies and subfacies which make up the cycles. Assumed environments of deposition of the distinguished facies types are also presented. -Authors
