Abstract (in english)
   Fine clastic sediments-mostly variegated marlstones- have been deposited from the Albian on throughout the Upper Cretaceous and Paleogene in a slope setting to the south of the European Plate. Palaeogeographically this succession of slope sediments of the so-called Ultrahelvetic Zone or 'Buntmergelserie' represents the transition between the Rhenodanubian Flysh basin and the shelf of the European Plate in the north. Schönbachgraben section is situated along a small stream, southeast of Kammer-Schörfling village east of lake Attersee. Upper Cretaceous sediments from this locality was studied on the bases of foraminfera.
