Thus, the Dolomite Alps
appear to be devoid of a PTB unconformity, and this boundary is marked by the first appearance datum (FAD) of Hindeodus parvus, marker of the basal Triassic (Yin, 2000), after the recent ratification by the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS) of the Global Stratigraphic Section and Point (GSSP) at the base of Meishan section, southern China (Orchard, 2001).
Recently, in between visits to wineries and thermal spas, I attended a cooking school in the elegant kitchen of Casa di Guiliana in the village of Bure, San Pietro in Cariano, nestled in the foothills of the Dolomite Alps.
On my final day at Casa di Guiliana, a friend and I drove high up into the Dolomite Alps above Verona.
