  • Abstract Chronostratigraphical classification of rocks can be approached from two directions. The first is a ‘top-down’ process of subdivision of the geological column in a hierarchy of successively finer units. These units are therefore defined by their boundaries, which are time-planes, and form complete continuous series or scales. They are chosen to be widely recognizable, and hence correlatable, by means, in the Phanerozoic, of their contained guide-fossils, i.e. by their characteristic… CONTINUE READING
