Paleocene

PalaeoceneLate PaleocenePaleocene epoch
The Thanetian is, in the ICS Geologic timescale, the latest age or uppermost stratigraphic stage of the Paleocene Epoch or series.
It is divided into three ages: the Danian spanning 66 to 61.6 million years ago (mya), the Selandian spanning 61.6 to 59.2 mya, and the Thanetian spanning 59.2 to 56 mya.

Selandian

Middle PaleoceneMiddleS
The Thanetian is preceded by the Selandian age and followed by the Ypresian age (part of the Eocene).
It is preceded by the Danian and followed by the Thanetian.

Ypresian

Early EoceneLower EoceneEarly
The Thanetian is preceded by the Selandian age and followed by the Ypresian age (part of the Eocene).
It spans the time between, is preceded by the Thanetian age (part of the Paleocene) and is followed by the Eocene Lutetian age.

Thanet Formation

Thanet SandsThanetThanet Beds
The Thanetian is named after the Thanet Formation, the oldest Cenozoic deposit of the London Basin, which was first identified in the area of Kent (southern England) known as the Isle of Thanet.
It is of early to mid-Thanetian (late Paleocene) age and gave its name to that stratigraphic interval.

London Basin

London PlatformLondon
The Thanetian is named after the Thanet Formation, the oldest Cenozoic deposit of the London Basin, which was first identified in the area of Kent (southern England) known as the Isle of Thanet.
The lowest (oldest) unit is the Thanet Formation (of Thanetian age, 56 – 58 million years old ), which rests unconformable on top of the Chalk.

It is usually considered to overlap the Selandian and Thanetian within the Paleocene.

It is usually considered to be within the Paleocene, more specifically the Late Paleocene.

Isle of Thanet

Eritherium is an extinct genus of early Proboscidea found in the Ouled Abdoun basin (early Thanetian age), Morocco.

This zone lies within the Thanetian stage of the Paleocene series.
