The Leitha Limestone of Badenian age (Middle Miocene) at the type-locality in Grosshoeflein (Burgenland, Austria) is characterized by biostromal coral-rich strata which were reinterpreted from an actualistic viewpoint in comparison with Recent Caribbean and Arabian Gulf coral communities. The investigated outcrop (quarry "Fenk") is interpreted as a sequence of biostromal framebuilding ...

The Leitha Limestone is a consolidated, light-coloured algal limestone and is rich in remains of sea creatures such as mussels, gastropods and sharks. In contrast, slightly older, quartz-rich, sandy gravels occur on the Rust Ridge.

Previously, Lower Austria's capital was Vienna, even though Vienna has not officially been part of Lower Austria since 1921. With a land area of 19,186 km 2 (7,408 sq mi) and a population of 1.612 million people, Lower Austria is the country's largest state; it is the second most populous after the federal state of Vienna.[PDF]Get Price
