Late Jurassic Bio- and Chemostratigraphy of the Lower Saxony Basin, Northern Germany

To obtain a stratigraphic standard section for the Upper Jurassic of the Lower Saxony Basin, we investigated a 325-m-long core using biostratigraphic (benthic foraminifers, ostracods, and palynology) and chemostratigraphic (stable carbon isotope data) methods. From the results, we were able to establish a detailed biozonation of the section.
