New results of the lithological and paleontological study of the Middle Eocene biogenic siliceous rocks of the central part of the Ukrainian Shield

  title={New results of the lithological and paleontological study of the Middle Eocene biogenic siliceous rocks of the central part of the Ukrainian Shield},
  author={Vadim L. Stefanskyi and Tetiana Stefanska and M. L. Kutsevol},
The present paper contains new results of complex studies on the geological structure, lithology, and fauna of the Middle Eocene siliceous rocks of the Ukrainian Shield Ingul megablock located in the vicinity of the villages of Tsybulevo, Verblyuzhka and Pervozvanovka of Kirovograd Oblast and Voronovka village of Mykolayiv Oblast. Based on new findings and analysis of malacofauna, the Middle Eocene age of the gaize-like sandstones of Verblyuzhka village was confirmed. For the first time…

Smectite-bearing clays of the Middle Eocene Kievskaya Formation in the Russian Plate and their genesis
The component composition and specific features of the structure of smectite-bearing clays in the Middle Eocene Kievskaya Formation of the Russian Plate were studied by the scanning electron
The origin of megastructuresof the Ukrainian Shield in view of the magmatic plume concept
Internal tectonic structure of the Ukrainian Shield is currently seen as an association of megablocks (megastructures) divided by abyssal fractures. Within this region, six megablocks
Eocene spiculites and spongolites in southwestern Australia: Not deep, not polar, but shallow and warm
Siliceous spongolite and spiculite are generally interpreted as deep- and/or cold-water deposits, largely because modern analogs are found mostly in cold- and/or deep-water environments. However,
Present-day and fossil rhodolith pavements compared: Their potential for analysing shallow-water carbonate deposits
Abstract Coralline red algae represent the main biogenic components in most shallow-water carbonate successions from the Eocene to the Recent. They contribute significantly to sediment production on

Eocene fossils from southern England and northern France are examined and found evidence that precursors of up to nine of 20 currently recognized Acropora species groups existed 49–34 Myr, at palaeolatitudes far higher than current limits, to 51° N.
Cenozoic Dasycladales. A photo-atlas of Lutetian species from French Cenozoic basins
Dasycladales are unicellular green algae in existence since the Paleozoic era. Dasycladales discovered in the Cenozoic strata of the French sedimentary basins are noteworthy for the exceptional

Ecology and applications of benthic foraminifera
This book presents the ecological background required to explain how fossil forms are used in dating rocks and reconstructing past environmental features including changes of sea level and demonstrates how living foraminifera can be used to monitor modern-day environmental change.
