Abstract

The Albian-Turonian of SW Iran is characterized by two types of carbonate depositional systems: an Albian muddy, benthic foraminifera-dominated, ramp type system, and a Cenomanian-Turonian rudist-rimmed platform to intrashelf basin type system. Third order depositional sequences have been defined in these, constrained by new biostratigraphic and outcrop information, which allowed to evaluate the relative influence of tectonics and eustatism on the sedimentation patterns.
