  • Basic introduction to Biostratigraphy
  • Graphic correlation method
  • StrataPlot specifications
  • StrataPlot demonstration
biostratigraphy
Biostratigraphy
  • Biostratigraphy is the science of dating rocks by using the fossils contained within them.
  • Index Fossil - short life span

-broad geographic distribution

- common

- easy to identify

  • http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Biostratigraphy
biostratigraphy geologic time
Biostratigraphy - Geologic Time

biostratigraphy fossils
Biostratigraphy - Fossils
  • Macrofossils

Ammonites (cephalopods)

      • very good index fossil
  • Microfossils

Foraminifera (single-celled protists)

      • Planktonic species - good index fossils

biostratigraphy graphic correlation
Biostratigraphy - Graphic Correlation
  • Uses any event that can be tied to the absolute time.
    • First and last stratigraphic occurrences of taxa (e.g., 1st appearance of P. helvetica in the geologic)
    • First abundant occurrence of some taxa
    • Magnetic reversals.
    • etc.
