About these proceedings


The 1st International Congress on Stratigraphy (STRATI 2013), hold in Lisbon, 1–7 July 2013, follows the decision to internationalize the conferences previously organized by the French Committee of Stratigraphy (STRATI), the last one of which was held in Paris in 2010. Thus, the congress possesses both the momentum gained from an established conference event and the excitement of being the first International Congress on Stratigraphy. It is held under the auspices of the International Commission on Stratigraphy (IUGS), and it is envisaged that this first congress will lead to others being held in the future.

This book contains all papers accepted for oral or poster presentation at the 1st International Congress on Stratigraphy. Papers include a short abstract, main text, figures, tables, and references. Each paper has been reviewed by two internationally renowned scientists.

“The volume demonstrates well the idea that the stratigraphy is something more than only the ‘classical’ biostratigraphy and the modern chronostratigraphy. … this volume gives a rare chance to learn about regional stratigraphy, including that of the lberian Peninsula, Northern Africa, and the exUSSR. … Undoubtedly, the volume edited by RocHA et al. will be of big interest to all stratigraphers, many sedimentologists and palaeontologists, and some other geologists.” (Dmitry A. Ruban, Zentralblatt für Geologie und Paläontologie, Vol. 2015 (3-4), December, 2016)

“This book with its numerous contributions will be a milestone in the fields of stratigraphy. It shows not only the importance of stratigraphy, it also underlines the fact that in our days stratigraphy has become a discipline connecting all aspects of earth sciences.” (Thomas Hofmann, Jahrbuch der Geologischen Bundesanstalt, Vol. 155 (1-4), December, 2015)
