Abstract

We present a revised Phanerozoic time scale and introduce a stratigraphic subdivision of the Phanerozoic based on supersequences. The definition of time slices is based on major (second-order) unconformities that can be correlated on a supraregional or global scale. Thirty-two Phanerozoic time slices are distinguished with a duration between 8 and 33 million years.
