Climate and biota of the Early Paleogene

Principal investigator:
Ján Soták
Investigators from institution:
Silvia Ozdínová
Co-operating institutions and scientists:

Schmitz B. (Norway), Pujalte V. (Spain)


Characteristics of the project
Project is oriented on i) time calibration of bioevents during Paleocene and Eocene; ii) analyze of important horizons of the Lower Paleogene (C/T boundary, PETM, IETO), according to their climatic conditions; iii) defining of GSSP / global stratotype profiles and points.
