Hogland Series

The Hogland Series are a series of Subjotnian sedimentary rocks exposed in the island of Gogland, the Sommer Islands and the nearby sea bottom in the Gulf of Finland. The series encompass quartz-rich conglomerates and breccias plus some volcanic rocks of mafic composition in the form of lava flows and some more silica-rich igneous rocks including quartz-porphyry. The porphyries, which lie at the top the pile, share their origin with the rapakivi granites found nearby. An exhumed Subjotnian erosion surface is exposed on the island.

                                               

Jotnian

In north European geology, Jotnian sediments are a group of Precambrian rocks more specifically assigned to the Mesoproterozoic Era, albeit some might be younger. Jotnian sediments include the oldest known sediments in the Baltic area that have not been subject to metamorphism. Stratigraphically, Jotnian sediments overlie the rapakivi granites and other igneous and metamorphic rocks and are often intruded by younger diabases.

                                               

Silesian (series)

The Silesian is in the geologic timescale of Europe a series or epoch, a subdivision of the Carboniferous system or period. It was named for Silesia, a region that stretches over the Czech Republic, Poland and Germany.

                                               

Stephanian (stage)

The Stephanian is a stage in the regional stratigraphy of northwest Europe with an age between roughly 304 and 299 Ma. It is a subdivision of the Carboniferous system or period and the regional Silesian series. The uppermost units of the Coal Measures of England and Wales are probably of Stephanian age, though the larger part of this formation is referred to the earlier Westphalian. The stage derives its name from the city of Saint-Etienne for its coal mining basin in eastern central France where strata of this age occur. In the official geologic timescale of the ICS, the Stephanian is pla ...

                                               

Sularp Brook

Sularp Brook, near Fågelsång, Skåne, Sweden, is the location of the Global Boundary Stratotype Section and Point which marks the boundary between the Middle and Late epochs of the Ordovician period on the geologic time scale. The first appearance of the graptolite Nemagraptus gracilis defines the boundary. The rock section consists primarily of dark-gray shale and mudstone, except for a phosphorite marker bed 1.4 m above the GSSP, and was probably deposited at a water depth exceeding 100 m. Drill cores have revealed almost identical stratigraphy across an area several km wide. Due to heati ...

                                               

Westphalian (stage)

The Westphalian is a stage in the regional stratigraphy of northwest Europe with an age between roughly 313 and 304 Ma. It is a subdivision of the Carboniferous system or period and the regional Silesian series. The Westphalian is named for the region of Westphalia in western Germany where strata of this age occur. The Coal Measures of England and Wales are also largely of Westphalian age though they also extend into the succeeding Stephanian. The Westphalian age is preceded by the Namurian stage/age which corresponds to the Millstone Grit Series of Great Britain and succeeded by the Steph ...

Pino - logical board game which is based on tactics and strategy. In general this is a remix of chess, checkers and corners. The game develops imagination, concentration, teaches how to solve tasks, plan their own actions and of course to think logically. It does not matter how much pieces you have, the main thing is how they are placement!
