Analysis of standard lithostratigraphic nomenclature and proposal of division for Skole unit in the Polish Flysch Carpathians

Tomasz Malata

Abstract


The analysis of the present formal lithostratigraphic designations in the area of the Skole unit, Polish Flysch Carpathians, has been performed. A new lithostratigraphic division of this unit into 9 formations and several members has been proposed. Simultaneously, traditional nomenclature has been kept where appropriate and a number of new names and designations has been limited to a minimum. The mappability of lithostratigraphic units (except wide-spread and lithologically different layers) as a necessary condition has been postulated.
