|Applied aspects of micropaleontology on the example of producing sediments foraminifera study, Upper Paleogene and Neogene, western Kamchatka
|Reconstruction of paleo-facies environments based on the studying of foraminiferal complexes distribution in the sequence has revealed the cycles and regularity of facies change in the Upper Paleogene and Neogene sediments of West Kamchatka. A number of biofacies typical for the sediments studied have been developed. The distribution of Foraminifers in different parts of transgressive-regressive cycles and trends of faunal complexes changes have been analyzed. Two large cycles of community development that correspond to Kavransky and Verkhnevoyampolsky lithologic cycles of sedimentation are distinguished.
Key words: foraminifers, Oligocene, Miocene, Western Kamchatka, biofacies, cycles of sedimentation.
