However, the boundary markers mentioned above cannot be used for exact correlation with the S/D boundary stratotype
in Klonk (GSSP, in bed No.
With the establishment of the GSSP (Global Boundary Stratotype
Section and Point) of the base of the Hettangian, and hence the Triassic-Jurassic boundary (Hillebrandt et al.
The Global Stratotype
Section and Point (GSSP) for the base of the Ordovician is currently nailed down in Newfoundland with Iapetognathus fluctivagus, just (hopefully) below the earliest graptolites.
The concept has even spawned a new journal (Geoheritage) from Springer that includes, within the spectrum of geoheritage, a range of topics including geodiversity, geosites, geoparks, stratotype
conservation and management, scientific research, education, the promotion of the geosciences, materials, data, people important in the history of science, museums, collections, and all portable geoheritage.
We have used the magnetostratigraphic susceptibility technique to establish high resolution correlation among Paleocene/Eocene (P/E) boundary sequences in Egypt, Spain and the US with reference to the Global Boundary Stratotype
Section and Point (GSSP), defining the base of the Eocene, located near Luxor in Egypt.
Mississippian (Chesterian) bivalves from the Pennsylvanian stratotype
area in West Virginia and Virginia.
Isotopic 'events' in the GRIP ice core: A stratotype
for the Late Pleistocene.
In the stratotype
locality at Fagelsang, Sweden, the base of the P.
Systematics and phylogeny of the Late Osagean and Meramecian crinoids Platycrinites and Eucladocrinus from the Mississippian stratotype
The elements of the McDonnell Douglas logo were modernized, simplified and reproportioned, and then aligned with the Boeing Stratotype
logo, which was created by company artists in the 1940s.
For example, the global stratotype
of the Precambrian-Cambrian boundary at Mistaken Point in Newfoundland has had to be designated as an Ecological Reserve
Each global stage, on the other hand, is formally defined by its lower boundary as specified by its Global Stratotype
Section and Point (GSSP).
