Abstract
Based on delta C-13 data from two drillcores recovered from the Siljan district, we present a first continuous carbon isotope record of the upper Tremadocian-lower Katian limestone succession of central Sweden. New names for some isotopic carbon excursions from the Cambrian-Ordovician boundary through the basal Darriwilian are introduced. The Mora 001 core from the western part of the Siljan impact structure ranges through the Lower-Middle Ordovician, whereas the Solberga 1 core from its eastern part ranges through the Middle-lower Upper Ordovician. Upper Tremadocian and Floian units are extremely condensed and include extensive stratigraphic gaps. Multiple hardgrounds, sometimes with minor karstic overprint, imply recurrent periods of... (More)

Upper Tremadocian and Floian units are extremely condensed and include extensive stratigraphic gaps. Multiple hardgrounds, sometimes with minor karstic overprint, imply recurrent periods of erosion and/or non-deposition. Like in other parts of Sweden, the Dapingian and Darriwilian succession is characterized by a relatively complete sedimentary record and low sedimentation rates. (Less)
