Benthonic foraminiferal stratigraphic distribution of QomFormation in Southwest Kashan

Category Paleontology and Stratigraphy
Group GSI.IR
Location 21th symposium on geosciences
Holding Date 24 May 2008

Abstract:
      One stratigraphic section selected for studying the deposits of Qom Formation in 70km Southwest Kashan. The thickness of the studied section is 150 m, and 90 samples were collected. In this study, 29 genera and 34 species of benthonic foraminifera were identified. According to foraminiferal assemblage, the age of the deposits is Early Oligocene (Rupelian). Also, this section is comparable with Eulepidian - Nephrolepidina ? Nummulites Assemblage Zone of Adams and Bourgeois (1967).
