Eocene nummulitic limestones represent potential reservoir rocks for oil accumulations in Central Asia, North Africa, and the Mediterranean region. Examination of their lithology and sedimentation settings is of great practical significance. This communication is dedicated to the characteristics of carbonate facies with Early–Middle Eocene nummulites developed in the Mountainous Crimea. Their best outcrops, which form a narrow band extending W–E, occur in the Mount Inkerman, Krasnyi Mak… Expand
