Abstract


ON THE STRATIGRAPHY OF THE SERIES IN THE TECTONIC WINDOW AT ROPA NEAR GORLICE (WESTERN CARPATMANS)

The oldest sediments appearing on the surface are the Hieroglyphic beds. They are green argillaceous shales intercalated by cubic glauconitic thin-bedded sand-stones. In the southwestern part of the area there also occur thick-bedded glauconitic sandstones, glassy and hard. A characteristic feature of the Hieroglyphic beds should be considered the presence of intercalations (up. to I m. thick) of black argillaceous shales of menilitic type. The lower part of the Hieroglyphic beds is, according to J. Blaicher of Lower Eocene age (see Polish text), whereas their upper part is of an age coinciding with the interval between Middle and Upper Eocene.

On top of the Hieroglyphic beds is laid down a horizon of yellowish-green soft Globigerina marls, of 7 to 8 m. thickness. This horizon of Globigerina marls in the window series corresponds to the horizon of Submenilitic Globigerina, marls found in the outer group.
