Quaternary Palynostratigraphy of the Bulgarian Black Sea coastal area

Mariana FILIPOVA-MARINOVA

Abstract


The palynological method is one of the main biostratigraphic methods. Pollen analysis of marine sediments offers the possibility of obtaining long and presumably continuous records of coastal vegetation that are the source of plant microfossils found in the marine basins. Such sequences provide opportunity to develop complete and high-resolution records of terrestrial events. The stratigraphic subdivision of sediments from the western Black Sea area is based on qualitative interpretation of the pollen and spore assemblages, and the vertical and spatial distribution of selected indicator taxa
