Also known as 4.70-4.90
Where: Poland (51.2° N, 22.6° E: paleocoordinates 49.7° N, 17.7° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Bartonian (41.3 - 38.0 Ma)
• SPECIFIC STRATIGRAPHY: Collection froms horizon between 4.7 and 4.9 m below top of section. Deposits are less than 10 m thick in total, overlain by Quaternary sands, and overlying Maastrictian sediments.
•AGE: Assigned to Bartonian on the basis of similarity of faunal assemblage to Bartonian of England. Furthermore, analysis of planktonic foraminifers shows the unit to be the Globigerapsis semiinvolute Zone, that is in the lower part of the Upper Eocene, and on the basis of coccoliths to be in the Discoaster nodifer biozone, that is uppermost Middle and lowermost Upper Eocene.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: offshore; poorly lithified, concretionary, glauconitic, phosphatic, green sandstone
Size class: macrofossils
Preservation: original aragonite, original calcite
Collection methods: Macrofauna are housed in the Geological Instiutute (IG) of Poland.
