Abstract

This thesis examines the Microfauna of the North Sea Palaeogene, particularly the foraminifera, and their biostratigraphical applications in the Central and Southern North Sea. A biostratigraphical scheme has been erected for calcareous benthic (CB Zones 1-15), agglutinated benthic (AB Zones 1-11b) and planktonic foraminifera (PK Zones la-13, utilising diatoms and radiolaria where necessary), which was then combined into one scheme using the previous 3 'groups'. The Shell Expro. U.K. computer was used to draw up rangecharts of these 'groups', and each well is described in the text and in 'Distribution charts' (See Enclosures Nos. 1-10, plus Rangecharts in pocket). The for amini feral biozonation of this thesis is correlated with NSP (North Sea planktonic) and NSB (North Sea benthonic) Zones of King (1983, 1989), the P Zones of Berggren et al. (1985), the sedimentological sequences of Stewart (1987) and the nannoplankton zones of L. Gallagher in his Ph.D. thesis. A canbined biostratigraphic scheme, utilising both foraminifera and nannoplankton was proposed in Gallaghers thesis and is discussed here.
