Origin, age and stratigraphic significance of distal fallout ash tuffs from the Carboniferous-Permian continental Saar-Nahe Basin (SW Germany)

Koniger, Stephan; Lorenz, Volker; Stollhofen, Harald; Armstrong, Richard


Thin, widespread, fallout tuff layers interbedded within fluvio-lacustrine successions of the Carboniferous-Permian Saar-Nahe Basin provide important tephrostratigraphic markers. In addition, radiogeochronometric data derived from the tuffs serve as calibration points for the adjustment to regional chronostratigraphy and to numerical time scales. The Pappelberg-Tuff in the Meisenheim Formation (Glan Group) has been dated by U/Pb zircon SHRIMP technique at 297.0±3.2 Ma. Taking the...[Show more]
