Loc. 5.5, Pozary Quarry, sect. 345, Pozary (beds 96-158) (Silurian of Czech Republic)

Where: Czech Republic (50.0° N, 14.3° E: paleocoordinates 48.9° S, 55.3° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Pozary Formation, Pridoli (423.0 - 419.2 Ma)

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; shelly/skeletal, gray limestone and gray lime mudstone

• "The greater part of the Pridoli sequence up to the base of bed 120 is formed of laminites, which consist of a regular alternation of micrite-rich biomicrites and fine grained bioclastic limestones. Several beds of coarse, unsorted bioclastic limestones are developed (100,106). According to Z. Kukal (1986) this...represents quiet limestone sedimentation influenced by climatic cycles [details]. [Limestone beds have bioclastic laminae, micrite beds have clayey laminae.] [Higher in section there are also calcareous shale intercalations, but these are minor.] [Bioclastic limestones come to dominate over biomicrites higher in the section.]"
