12th Jurassica Conference and Workshop of the ICS Berriasian Working Group meeting

Scientific meetings >> 12th Jurassica Conference. Workshop of the ICS Berriasian Working Group meeting

The XIIth Jurassica Conference and Workshop of the ICS Berriasian Working Group meeting were organized from 19 till 23 of April 2016 in Slovakia (Smolenice and Bratislava). This meeting was multi- and interdisciplinary, focussing on precise correlations that contribute to stage and J/K boundary definition.
