Stevns Klint (GS 1-1) is the main GeoSite.
Note: Stevns is a key GeoSite within both Theme 1 and 2!
All the other 7 locations within Denmark, which expose the boundary, are supplementary GeoSites to Theme 2. The supplementary GeoSites expose the Cretaceous-Palaeogene boundary in other, generally more micritic facies, than at Stevns, and in some of the locations there is less hiatus at the boundary.
