We shall be guiding you to the most important localities in central and eastern Poland that record the environments, biotic communities and events just prior to and across the Cretaceous-Paleogene (K-Pg) boundary. This trip will include the classic localities near Kazimierz Dolny, in the Middle Vistula River section, as well as a section near Chełm with the K-Pg iridium anomaly. We shall also pay a visit to a regional museum at Kazimierz Dolny with a collection of late Cretaceous fossils.


Led by Marcin Machalski, Danuta Olszewska-Nejbert and Ewa Świerczewska-Gładysz.
