New chemostratigraphic data through the Mulde Event interval (Silurian, Wenlock), Gotland, Sweden

Abstract
The Mid-Silurian (Wenlock) Mulde Event is a globally recognised faunal turnover and extinction event affecting pelagic fauna as well as shallow marine benthos. Time-equivalent strata in the carbonate platform succession of Gotland, Sweden reveal marked changes in the compositions of reefs and the formation of chemical and microbial carbonates in the early aftermath of the extinctions. New high-resolution carbon isotope data from north-eastern Gotland provide information useful for global correlation of this event.
