De quelques charbonnages du Limbourg belge (Houthalen et ZolderVoort) une faunule d'ammonites, belemnites et inocerames a ete etudiee. Les nannofossiles des echantillons d'ammonites ont ete identifies. L'assemblage est d'âge Santonien moyen (superieur) a superieur et peut ainsi etre compare a la «Craie de Lonzee» (province de Namur, Belgique) et a la Formation d'Aix-la-Chapelle de la region d'Aix-laChapelle - Vaals (SE des Pays-Bas et Allemagne)

Abstract The Late Cretaceous paleobiogeography of the coccolithophore Braarudosphaera bigelowii is reconstructed based on 331 stratigraphic occurrences and complemented by 307 neighboring absences. During the Cenomanian B. bigelowii was found throughout the European seaways, at the base of the North America Interior Seaway, at the paleo-Atlantic margin of South America, in the Neuquen Basin, on the southern tip of the Indian plate, and on the Kerguelen Plateau. During the Late Cretaceous, its ra...

A palynological study of the Chalk Group (Campanian-Danian) in the Meer borehole (northern Belgium), which penetrated the thickest succession known in the Campine Basin, has revealed diverse, well-preserved organic-walled dinoflagellate cyst assemblages. The succession contains numerous chronostratigraphically significant dinocyst events, which are based mainly on the highest consistent occurrences of index species. At least 35 bioevents have enabled a subdivision into nine intervals, at stage o...

Chalk is the most characteristic facies type of the Upper Cretaceous in Belgium and the only Cretaceous rock type found on the central and northern parts of the Brabant Massif. Marine Cretaceous deposits gradually encroached the Brabant Massif from the south during transgressive pulses starting in the Cenomanian - Turonian, displaying chalk facies from the Coniacian onwards. The chalk cover on the northern part of the Brabant Massif and in the Campine basin was not installed until the late Santo...

The Santonian and Campanian inoceramids from the Houthalen mineshaft (Limburg, NE Belgium) are described. Four successive faunas were distinguished: the Sphenoceramus pachti fauna, dated for the Middle Santonian, the Sphenoceramus patootensiformis fauna, of the upper Upper Santonian - lower Lower Campanian, the Cordiceramus paraheberti fauna, possibly of the upper Lower Campanian, and the Inoceramus tenuilineatus fauna, characteristic for the middle Upper Campanian. The appearance of the latter ...

The Late Cretaceous and Cenozoic sedimentary record in the Campine Basin along the southern border of the North Sea Basin is analysed in terms of sequence stratigraphy. All available biostratigraphic, and in some cases, magnetostratigraphic data are used to constrain the sequence chronostratigraphy. The relative geographic extent of the strata is used as an indication of the relative sea level. Tectonic and eustatic components could be distinguished in several cases using regional geological inf...

The upper Upper Coniacian and Santonian ammonite stratigraphy of the Munster Basin, Westphalia, NW Germany, is described in the context of regional litho-, inoceramid- and sequence stratigraphy. The Sphenoceramus pachti & S. cardissoides Zone, previously regarded as basal Santonian, is placed in the uppermost Coniacian. The Lower Santonian corresponds to the Cladoceramus undulatoplicatus Zone, the lower Middle Santonian to the Cordiceramus cordiformis Zone. The Sphenoceramus pinniformis Zone spa...

In a series of papers describing Late Cretaceous and Early Palaeogene echinoderm faunas (exclusiveof holothurians) of the Maastrichtian type area, the present contribution comprises a detailed accountof the litho- and chronostratigraphy and biozonations of these deposits, and of localities from whichthe echinoderm material to be described stems. In subsequent papers reference will be made to thisintroductory part.
