Biostratigraphic Studies of the Sarbatir Formation in the Foothills of Kuljuktau by Foraminifera
This article is the result of the biostratigraphic studies of the Oligocene-Early Miocene sediments of the foothills of the Kuljuktau Ridge and adjacent territories.
The timeliness of these works was explained by the fact that the Oligocene – Early Miocene sediments due to the poverty in them of the faunal remains did not have a sufficiently paleontological sound partitioning scheme, since the Neogene of these areas has not been studied.
The need to dismember the Oligocene-Early Miocene of this territory of the Central Kyzylkum is dictated by the fact that the current state of the validity of the dismemberment and correlation does not provide the necessary accuracy and adequacy of the correlation with the International Stratigraphic Scale.
