Short summary
This study provides an age model based on dinocysts for the early Oligocene succession from the North Sea. The changes in the dinocysts assemblage show that the succession was deposited in a proximal and dynamic environment. Furthermore, the results suggests that the early icehouse climate played an important role in the depositional development of the Oligocene succession in the North Sea basin.
