Cabanin Horizon, platform facies, SW Novaya Zemlya (Devonian to of Russian Federation)

Where: Arkhangel'skaya Oblast', Russian Federation (72.0° N, 52.0° E: paleocoordinates 3.2° N, 2.8° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• basin-level geographic resolution

When: Cabanin Horizon Formation, Late/Upper Emsian to Late/Upper Emsian (402.5 - 387.7 Ma)

• interpreted as later Dalejan and most of Couvinian (serotinus, patulus, partitius, costatus, and kockelianus conodont zones)

•JA: originally entered as Emsian to Eifelian; the serotinus and patulus zones are late Emsian

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; dolomitic limestone and shale

• Shallow carbonate platform facies.
• Lithologies read off of stratigraphic chart (fig. 2): dolomitized limestone; shale, calcarenite, sandstone, layered limestones, bioherms and reefs. 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.

Size class: macrofossils
