Late Cretaceous-Danian cool-water carbonate deposition in northwest Europe lasted for more than 35 my and covered an area of about 5,250,000 km2 with east-west and north-south extents of at least 3,500 km and about 1,500 km, respectively. Maximum thicknesses of the succession amount to more than 2 km. The region was situated between paleolatitudes 35° 50° N, and the study area, comprising the Danish Basin and its margins, was situated at about 45° N. The relatively deep-water basinal sediments are mainly coccolithic chalks with a sparse benthic fauna. The shallow-marine faunas are of high diversity, belong to the...
