Abstract. The Oligocene successions of the southern North Sea Basin are internationally important as they constitute the classic Rupelian (Lower Oligocene) and Chattian (Upper Oligocene) stratotype sections. The Rupelian stratotype, i.e. the stiff clays outcropping along the Rupel River in NW Belgium, has been the topic of many (micro)paleontological, sedimentological, stratigraphical and geochemical studies. Here we present a state of the art overview on the research carried out on the Rupelian unit-stratotype and contribute on new insights concerning the Rupelian-Chattian boundary.
