Magneto-biostratigraphy of the 'Buchenstein Beds' at Frotschbach (Western Dolomites, Italy)

Muttoni, G.; Kent, Dennis V.; Nicora, A.; Rieber, H; Brack, P.

In this short contribution we present preliminary results on the magneto-biostratigraphy of the Anisian/Ladinian boundary interval at Frotschbach in the Dolomites of northern Italy. The interdisciplinary research carried out at this and on other coeval sections such as Aghia Triada and Vlichos on Hydra island, Greece (Muttoni et al., in prep.) is aimed at correlating in detail the well- known Tethyan biozonation to a geomagnetic polarity sequence of reversals for the construction of a standard Triassic time scale.
