Abstract The uppermost Cretaceous (upper Campanian-Maastrichtian) pelagic successions from the Malatya Basin (NW Malatya, eastern Anatolia) were studied by 688 samples, which were collected from five stratigraphic sections in the Hekimhan area. The pelagic deposits conformably overlie rudist bearing shallow-water limestones and are overlain conformably by Maastrichtian dolomites and unconformably by Paleocene - Eocene deposits, respectively. The pelagic successions in the Hekimhan area comprise ...

Abstract Throughout most of the 19th and 20th centuries, studies of Paleogene stratigraphy carried out in the Iberian Peninsula lagged behind those of northern Europe. More recently, however, Iberian contributions on this topic have increased in both number and importance. This is highlighted by the definition of several global stratotype sections and points (GSSPs) and auxiliary stratotype sections and points (ASSPs). Geographically, the Basque–Cantabrian region of the western Pyrenees is espec...

Resume L’etude biostratigraphique detaillee de haute resolution et l’analyse quantitative de plusieurs coupes etudiees en Tunisie (El Kef stratotype), en Espagne (coupes d’Agost et de Caravaca) localisees dans la Tethys et en France en Atlantique, confirment que l’intervalle de depot du passage Cretace-Paleogene est continu et depourvu de hiatus. Les assemblages de foraminiferes planctoniques du Maastrichtien terminal de ces coupes sont largement domines par les formes biseriees telles que les h...

Timing and rates of tectonic events, evolutionary processes, and oceanographic and paleoclimatic changes must be based on high-precision numerical age calibration of stages defined in Global Stratotype and Section Points (GSSPs). The Cretaceous Chronostratigraphic Database (CRETCSDB3) is an objective, testable database that calibrates select Cretaceous events and enables high-resolution chronostratigraphic correlations. CRETCSDB3 is a compilation of more than 3500 taxa and marker beds in nearly ...

We have undertaken a comprehensive, integrated, cyclo-magnetostratigraphic analysis and study of the calcareous nannofossils of the Upper Maastrichtian hemipelagic succession in three sections of the Basque Basin (Zumaia, Sopelana and Hendaia). The sections were correlated at bed-by-bed scale through careful analysis of the lithological stacking pattern and significant sedimentary features. For spectral analysis we used an available high-resolution carbonate proxy record spanning 64 m of section...

The well-exposed and continuous uppermost Cretaceous in the coastal section of Zumaia (northern Spain) crops out as cyclic, deep-water, hemipelagic carbonate-rich sediments of significant geological interest. We present a new, high-resolution calibration of planktonic foraminiferal and calcareous nannofossil biostratigraphic datums, alongside new magnetostratigraphy. Six planktonic foraminiferal zones (Rugoglobigerina rotundata to Pseudoguembelina hariaensis) and nine nannofossil (sub)zones (UC1...

Abstract A high-resolution biostratigraphic analysis of planktic foraminifers confirms that the Bidart section at the eastern margin of the Atlantic Ocean exhibits a continuous and complete Cretaceous/Paleogene (K/Pg) transition interval. The biozones and subzones recorded in this section are less expanded than their equivalent in Tunisian sections: El Kef (Global Stratotype Section and Point: GSSP for the K/Pg boundary) and Elles (auxiliary section), but they are sufficiently thick to allow a d...

A short section within the siliciclastic sequence of the Gosau Group of the Gams Basin provides for the first time an upper Maastrichtian cephalopod fauna, which consists of: Angulithes (Angulithes) sp. indet., Hauericeras sp. indet. juv., Pachydiscus (Pachydiscus) gollevillensis (d’orbigny 1850), Glyptoxoceras cf. rugatum (Forbes , 1846) and Neancyloceras bipunctatum (schluter 1872). The ammonite Pachydiscus (Pachydiscus) gollevillensis (d’orbigny 1850) is a typical Late Maastrichtian taxon. Na...

Abstract To determine, for chronostratigraphic purposes, whether the Maastrichtian seawater 87 Sr/ 86 Sr ratio has been preserved in calcite shells, oxygen, carbon, and strontium isotope analyses have been carried out on carbonate matrix and inoceramid shell samples from deep-sea carbonate sediments at the Sopelana and Bidart sections in the Basque-Cantabrian Basin. These analyses were compared with clay-mineral distributions from the same locations. In contrast to Sopelana I samples, Bidart she...

During the latest Campanian–Maastrichtian the northwestern Australian margin was situated between the cool-water Austral Province to the south and the warm-water Tethyan Province to the north. The transitional nature of calcareous microfossil assemblages on the margin makes application of Tethyan biostratigraphic zonation schemes awkward, as many marker-species are missing or have different ranges. This study presents an integrated uppermost Campanian–Maastrichtian calcareous microfossil zonatio...
