Kazan Golovkinsky Stratigraphic Meeting 2023

“Sedimentary Earth Systems: Stratigraphy, Geochronology,
Paleoclimate, Petroleum Resources”

Seventh All-Russian Conference “Upper Paleozoic of Russia”


October 23-25, 2023
Kazan, Russia


The sedimentary basins of the past are represented by a very broad range of facies. The evolution of these facies reflects major geographical, climatic, and biospheric changes. Professor Nikolai A. Golovkinsky (1834–1897), a founder of the Kazan geological school and the author of fundamental studies on the geology and stratigraphy of Eastern Europe, was one of the first geologists to recognize the empirical rules of sedimentary succession and the lateral diachroneity of facies in sedimentary basins (Golovkinsky-Walther’s Law), which was a basis for the modern concept of sequence stratigraphy.

The Meeting was held as part of the implementation of grants from the federal budget of educational organizations of higher education to conduct events aimed at supporting student scientific communities.
