The Upper Triassic of northern Middle Siberia: stratigraphy and palynology
AbstractThe Lower Carnian succession in northern Middle Siberia includes continental and marine deposits. Bivalves, nautiloids and ammonites in the marine units provide biostratigraphic control for a palynological study of three important sections. Palynomorph associations from the base of the succession include forms that have previously been reported only from Norian and Rhaetian deposits in the Tethyan and Boreal realms. This suggests that, in comparison with other areas, the palynoflora of Siberia was more uniform throughout the Late Triassic, and that the Carnian and Norian stages have a miospore assemblage that is recognizable in a wide belt through Arctic Canada and northern Eurasia.
