First record of the early Sheinwoodian carbon isotope excursion (ESCIE) from the Barrandian area of northwestern peri-Gondwana

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The delta C-13 record from an early Sheinwoodian limestone unit in the Prague Basin suggests its deposition during the time of the early Sheinwoodian carbon isotope excursion (ESCIE). The geochemical data set represents the first evidence for the ESCIE in the Prague Basin which was located in high latitudes on the northwestern peri-Gondwana shelf during early Silurian times.
