Resumen

The Cabo Mondego section situated on the
Atlantic coast, 160 km north of Lisbon, presents characteristics
of a good boundary stratotype section (G.S.S.P.).
The outcrop is easily accessible and well exposed near the
sea where the erosion process is continuous. The section
shows a thick succession of clay limestones with a regular sedimentation
and belongs to a sedimenrary basin whose palaeogeography
is already well established.
The variety and abundance of cephalopods provide good
correlation between the submediterranean and the subboreal
provinces.
This section has already been considered during the discussion
on the definition of the boundary stage (Orsay meeting,
1970).
