New evidence for a chronostratigraphic division of the Ertebolle culture and the earliest Funnel Beaker culture on the southern Mecklenburg Bay.
We chose not to apply the group nomenclature of Weems and Olsen (1997) in which the Fundy basin sequence is divided into a lower Chatham Group and an upper Meriden Group, both of which extend across eastern North America, because it requires an explicitly chronostratigraphic, as opposed to lithostratigraphic framework, and the interpreted regional similarities are conceptually better handled within a tectonostratigraphic framework (Olsen 1997).
The antiquity of tubular bone rods is problematic as their small size precludes direct radiocarbon dating, and chronostratigraphic uncertainties exist at many sites (Vanhaeren & d'Errico 2006: 1120, 1122).

Using established Cs-I37 chronostratigraphic markers at 1954 and 1963, calculated sedimentation rates yield an average aggradation of 0.
An important example is the chronostratigraphic reevaluation of the Late Cretaceous continental and brackish fossils discovered by C.
The units described herein are all correlated approximately to the Aptian/Albian Stages, chronostratigraphic units of the Lower Cretaceous (Comanchean) of Texas.
If absolute ages for a unit are known either by radiometric measurements of samples or by employing crater-size frequency modeling--rock-stratigraphic (or lithostratigraphic) units can be transferred to time-rock or chronostratigraphic units using chronology models and impact-crater production functions (van Gasselt and Neukum 2011).
