Abstract top ↑

Sedimentary rocks that contain fossils can be used for an analysis of the paleogeographic development of the Atlantic Ocean and the adjacent land areas by temporal correlation of rock units that are far from one another. An orthographic projection of the Upper Cretaceous Atlantic was produced which includes micropaleontological and lithological data from "Deep Sea Drilling Project" core Grillings.

The descriptions of the morphology of the paleo-Atlantic basin and its effects on sedimentation as well as individual sediment components present a general survey on the development of the Late Mesozoic Atlantic. This book presents comprehensive information in concise form for all those interested in geosciences.
