Middle Miocene (Badenian) sequence at Górki, southern part of the Korytnica Bay (Holy Cross Mountains, Central Poland)

Stefan Witold Alexandrowicz

Abstract


The Middle Miocene (Badenian) sequence exposed at Górki, southern part of the Korytnica Bay (Holy Cross Mountains, Central Poland), comprises sands, limestones, and marls -containing a rich fossil assemblage indicative of the Lower Badenian sublittoral environments. Regional correlation of the sequence, based both upon the lithologies and foraminiferal associations. shows that two distinct Lower Badenian facies can be recognized in the Fore-Carpathian Depression. These are: sandy-calcareous-marly or clay deposits accumulated in the north, that is onshore (the Korytnica Bay including), and clayey-marly deposits accumulated in the central and southern parts of the Depression, that is offshore.
