Stratigraphic units (stratigraphic systems):
Lithostratigraphy: classification and types of lithostratigraphic units, unit’s boundaries, disconformities.
Biostratigraphy: leading fossils, types and determination of biostratigraphic units, definitions, boundaries
Event Stratigraphy: overview and recognition of stratigraphically relevant events, correlation, use
Chemostratigraphy: review of techniques, definition of chemostratigraphic units, isotope chemostratigraphy
Magnetostratigraphy: definitions, classifications, magnetostratigraphic polarity units
Sequence Stratigraphy: definitions, recognition, terminology, correlation
