Extent of the Upper Norian – Rhaetian Slatnik Formation in the Tolmin Nappe, eastern Southern Alps

  title={Extent of the Upper Norian – Rhaetian Slatnik Formation in the Tolmin Nappe, eastern Southern Alps},
  author={B. Ro{\vz}i{\vc} and L. Gale and T. Kolar-Jurkov{\vs}ek},
In the Norian and Rhaetian the area of present-day Slovenia was divided into the Julian Carbonate Platform on in present north, the Dinaric Carbonate Platform in the present south and the intermediate Slovenian Basin. Main Dolomite or the Dachstein Limestone were deposited, on the platforms whereas the basin was characterized by the Ba~a Dolomite. The Upper Norian-Rhaetian succession was recently recognized in the northern part of the basin. It was studied in two sections and defined as the… Expand
