Shore 600 m N of Gislövhammar, bed D [Gislöv Fm] (Cambrian of Sweden)

Also known as SSF 8.13

Where: Sweden (55.5° N, 14.3° E: paleocoordinates 42.5° S, 31.1° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Gislov Formation, Atdabanian (520.0 - 516.0 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From the Gislöv Fm, which unconformably overlies the Rispebjerg Sandstone, and is overlain by the Alum Shale. AGE: Late Atdabanian, on the basis of trilobite biostratigraphy; Holmia kjerulfi trilobite zone. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From bed D in local stratigraphic section.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; lithified, pyritic, gray, silty shale

• ENVIRONMENT: Marine siliciclastic setting.
• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: Grey, silty shale or laminated siltstone with scattered pyrite grains. LITHIFICATION: Lithified on the basis of figured specimens and facies descriptions.

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
