German term or phrase:SW-Abfall des Purgstall-Kogels
"Alter (gesichert): Badenium; Lithologie: Mergel; Lithologische Beschreibung: Sand, Ton, Kohle, Mergel, Kies. Vermutlich übergreifend basaler Teil: Sandentwicklung am ***SW-Abfall des Purgstall-Kogels*** bei Gleinstätten.; Typusgebiet: Groß St.Florian."
This one has me mystified. For "Abfall," I was initially thinking it had something to do with waste, perhaps a dump for the towns of Purgstall and Kogel, however although there is a Purgstall in Austria, there is no Kogel, and I'm now thinking that "Abfall" refers to the slope of something, but can't find any references for what the Purgstall-Kogel might be. Any insights? Thanks.
