The lower marine tertiary ilerdian of the cape of salou tarragona northeastern spain


, : The lower marine tertiary ilerdian of the cape of salou tarragona northeastern spain. Revista Espanola de Micropaleontologia 16(1-3): 367-380

Calcareous sediments of the Cap de Salou and surrounding area, attributed by previous workers to the Cretaceous or Paleocene (Thanetian), are studied. The alveolinid (Alveolina (Glomalveolina) telemetensis, A. (G.) lepidula) and orbitolitid (Orbitolites aff. gracilis) foraminiferal occurrence suggests an Ilerdian age for those sediments. Consequently they can be related with the Orpi Formation in its area type. The Thanetian marine transgression coming from the northwest stopped at the Campo area but during the Ilerdian the transgression reach the Salou area. The Ilerdian limestones are deposited in a narrow and elongate gulf conformed by the socle faults.
