The interregional correlation of the Oligocene – Lower Miocene sediments based on foraminifera
In 1995–2008 the “white spot” in the North-Eastern Black Sea closed geological mapping scale 1:200,000. New data on the seabed Geology has led to the revision of land sections, the discovery a rich assemblage foraminifera of the Early Miocene and the conclusion about the lack Oligocene sediments at the shore. This allows a comparison Oligocene – Lower Miocene fauna of the Caucasus and other regions.
