Title: Sequence stratgraphic interpretation of a Late Eocene carbonate platform margin (Mátyás-hegy section, Budai Mountains, Hungary)
Year: 2004
Volume: 22
Pages: 63-68.

Abstract: The Mátyás-hegy section, Buda Mountains (Hungary) was carbonate platform margin during late Eocene (Priabonian) time. The sea-level fluctuation curve of this area was built using benthic foraminifera associations. The geometry of the curve (positive and negative trends, hinge and inflection points) is used to estimate the approximate position of candidates for the systems tracts boundaries. I have been identified the Mátyás-hegy section contains the Priabonian 2 (Pr2) and Priabonian 3 (Pr3) sequence boundaries. The Pr3 boundary can be appointed exactly, while the Pr2 boundary by reason of incomplete exposed can not be exactly marked off.
