Timing, geochemical signature and environmental variability of the Permian strata and the Permian–Triassic boundary (PTB) in Svalbard

The project has been initiated in order to clarify uncertainties within the Permian-Triassic lithostratigraphic record of Svalbard. It aims to improve the general understanding of the palaeogeographic, climatic, environmental and ecological development (including mass extinctions) during the Late Palaeozoic.
