Abstract

RAMI, Mahin et al. Microbiostratigraphy of the Lower Cretaceous strata from the Bararig Mountain, SE Iran. Rev. mex. cienc. geol [online]. 2012, vol.29, n.1, pp. 63-75. ISSN 2007-2902.

The Barremian-Aptian sediments in the Bararig section (Southwest of Kuhbanan) consist of an alternation of marl and limestone. Thepalaeontological analysis led to identification of twenty seven taxa of benthic foraminifera and algae in the section studied. Diverse assemblages of benthic foraminifera and also the lowplanktonic/benthic (P/B) ratio show that the sedimentary environment in the study area was oxygenated and shallow.

Keywords : microbiostratigraphy; palaeoecology; Lower Cretaceous; Bararig section; Kerman Province; Iran.
