Where: Austria (48.6° N, 16.4° E: paleocoordinates 48.0° N, 16.1° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Badenian (13.7 - 12.7 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: Overlying Karpatian sediments, but also regionally overlying Paleocene-Jurassic basement rock. THICKNESS: Sampled horizon of ~10 cm within approximately 10 m thick composite section (composed of ~4 m thick pits. AGE: Early Badenian, Lower Lagenid froam biozone, NN5, M5 planktic foram biozone, lower Langhian. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From near base of section, in monotonous clay.
