The purpose of the project is to fill the substantial gaps in early Devonian stratigraphy of Central Bohemia with new biostratigraphical (conodont) data and to perform their detailed correlation with other faunal groups. Biostratigraphic data will be correlated with magnetic susceptibility (MS) and gamma-ray spectrometry (GRS) logs. The arrangement of these records into the main composite section of the Lower Devonian of the Barrandian area in combination with bio- and chemostratigraphic data, in terms of integrated stratigraphy, will strongly enhance the potential of the Barrandian area for interregional correlation purposes. The results of the project to be most welcomed in international scale are the long expected proposals for a novel revision of global early Devonian stratigraphy.
