Produktbeschreibung

The Paleogene represents the period in the Earth’s history between 65 and 24 million years before the present day. It starts after the big mass extinction event at the Mesozoic/Cenozoic boundary and is marked by global climatic changes in its younger epoch. This time interval has been intensively studied on a worldwide basis resulting in detailed knowledge of many aspects of the Earth's evolution. This volume presents a modern overview of this time period in the Eastern Alps and introduces a great variety of hitherto unpublished data. It comprises 18 papers covering a wide range of earth science fields: geodynamic, palaeogeographic, and palaeotopographic evolution; facial development; litho- and biostratigraphy; systematic palaeontology and palaeoecology of several organism groups (calcareous nannoplankton, foraminifera, molluscs, bryozoa, echinoids, palynoflora).
