The stratification (limestone from the Jurassic period) in the picture shows a clear cyclicity. This regularly thinning and thickening of the layers may be caused by periodic changes in the position of the Earth's axis, such as, for example, the Milankovich cycles. The harder limestone represent a period of shallower sea level than the softer marly layers that reflect a deeper depositional environment.
