Ratification of subseries/subepochs as formal rank/units in international chronostratigraphy

  title={Ratification of subseries/subepochs as formal rank/units in international chronostratigraphy},
  author={Marie-Pierre Aubry and Werner E. Piller and Philip L. Gibbard and David A. T. Harper and Stanley C. Finney},
voted unanimously to ratify the proposal for formal adoption of the chronostratigraphical/geochronological unit divisions subseries/subepoch within the International Stratigraphic Guide as International on Stratigraphy incorporated in a six-tiered chronostratigraphic hierarchy of units that are formally defined by a designated GSSP (Global Stage Stratotype and Point) at the base of designated type stages. Henceforth, subseries/subepochs of the Cenozoic are to be denominated by capitalised…

Subdividing the Holocene Series/Epoch: formalization of stages/ages and subseries/subepochs, and designation of GSSPs and auxiliary stratotypes
The Holocene, which currently spans ~11 700 years, is the shortest series/epoch within the geological time scale (GTS), yet it contains a rich archive of evidence in stratigraphical contexts that are
Sub-series and sub-epochs are informal units and should continue to be omitted from the International Chronostratigraphic Chart
In June 2016 the Paleogene, Neogene, and Quaternary subcommissions (ISPS, SNS, SQS) of the International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS) voted on whether to formalize sub-series and their
The status of subseries/subepochs for the Paleocene to Holocene: Recommendations to authors and editors
Formalization of subseries/subepochs for the Paleocene to Holo-cene has been a long unsettled question within the International Com-mission on Stratigraphy (ICS). Consideration of this matter by an
