Zhandr Horizon, starved trough facies, SW Novaya Zemlya (Devonian of Russian Federation)

Where: Arkhangel'skaya Oblast', Russian Federation (72.0° N, 52.0° E: paleocoordinates 8.3° N, 3.1° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• basin-level geographic resolution

When: Zhandr Horizon Formation, Frasnian (382.7 - 372.2 Ma)

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine

• Sediment-starved trough.
• Lithology not given for this formation. Based on other units in this sequence, I would guess it is probably mixed carbonate siliciclastic.
