BIOSTRATIGRAPHIC STUDY OF THE TYPESECTION GURPIFORMATION IN NORTH OF OIL DOMAIN LALI (KHOOZESTAN

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

   Abstract:
      The study of planktonic foraminifera of the type section Gurpi Formation at Lali area (Khoozestan) enable us to find the most standard biozones defined in Mediterranean regions, especially Tethysian domain. Six biozones were determined at the studied area. Biozones I (Globotruncanita elevata zone) and II (Globotruncana ventricosa zone) and III (Globotruncanita clcarata zone) represent the Early, Middle and Late Campanian respectively. Biozones IV (Globotruncana stuarti zone) and V (Gansserina gansseri zone) and VI (Abathomphalus mayaroensis zone) suggest the Early, Middle and Late Maastrichtian respectively.
