Abstract

The δ13C record from an early Sheinwoodian limestone unit in the Prague Basin suggests its deposition during the time of the early Sheinwoodian carbon isotope excursion (ESCIE). The geochemical data set represents the first evidence for the ESCIE in the Prague Basin which was located in high latitudes on the northwestern peri-Gondwana shelf during early Silurian times.

Keywords

Silurian, early Sheinwoodian, carbon isotope excursion, northern peri-Gondwana, Barrandian area, Prague Basin, Czech Republic.
