Sinelnikov Horizon (Dalejan part), carbonate facies, SW Novaya Zemlya (Devonian of Russian Federation)

Where: Arkhangel'skaya Oblast', Russian Federation (72.0° N, 52.0° E: paleocoordinates 2.7° N, 2.8° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• basin-level geographic resolution

When: Sinelnikov Horizon Formation, Late/Upper Emsian (402.5 - 391.9 Ma)

• laticostatus conodont zone

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; dolomitic limestone and shale

• Shallow-water, carbonate platform.
• Lithologies read off of stratigraphic chart (fig. 2): dolomitized limestone; shale interbeds; calcarenite. This time interval is represented by both carbonate platform and sediment-starved trough facies. Authors do not distinguish which lithologies are present in which facies.
