Redefinition and base of Quaternary and Pleistocene[szerkesztés]

Excuse me for writing in English. I received the following message from a colleague. I suggest (if still necessary) the relevant pages should be modified accordingly:


Dear Quaternary colleague,

The International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS ) has recently ratified to redefine the base of the Quaternary and Pleistocene at 2.6 Ma (see below). The end of a long lasting battle?


REDEFINITION OF THE BASE OF QUATERNARY SYSTEM/PERIOD, AND OF THE BASE OF THE PLEISTOCENE SERIES/EPOCH

The IUGS Executive Committee has ratified a request from the IUGS International Commission on Stratigraphy (ICS) regarding the definition of the base of Quaternary System/Period (and top of the Neogene System/Period), and redefinition of the base of the Pleistocene Series/Epoch (and top of the Pliocene Series/Epoch). The ICS submitted for IUGS ratification its recommendation that:

1) the base of the Pleistocene Series/Epoch be lowered such that the Pleistocene includes the Gelasian Stage/Age and its base is defined by the Monte San Nicola GSSP, which also defines the base of the Gelasian;

2) the base of the Quaternary System/Period, and thus the Neogene-Quaternary boundary, be formally defined by the Monte San Nicola GSSP and thus be coincident with the bases of the Pleistocene and Gelasian; and

3) with these definitions, the Gelasian Stage/Age be transferred from the Pliocene Series/Epoch to the Pleistocene.


More information on the subject can be found on our website: http://www.geo.uu.nl/inqua-nl/ or on http://www.quaternary.stratigraphy.org.uk/ Kind regards,

Has it been ratified already? I know that it is still under debate! So it is not yet our concern. – Istvánka Crystal128-package-toys.svg posta 2009. július 28., 10:56 (CEST)
