Welcome to RNames
RNames is a relational database linking stratigraphic names with each other that are considered to be time-equivalent or time-overlapping.
Each link in the database is drawn from a published reference and is considered as an expressed opinion. The sum of published opinions can be used to correlate a certain name with another name and ultimately to bin within a certain time frame. This is what this database is for. (more)
Currently RNames contains 4421 Stratigraphic names, 25186 Opinions, and 394 References.
Rnames was developed by Björn Kröger & Kari Lintulaakso and is based on Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) personal funding, KR 2095/7-1
