Title: Discussion of Miocene History and Faunas: ABSTRACT

Author(s): Robert M. Kleinpell

Article Type: Meeting abstract


Relative distribution of facies in the various Miocene foraminifer faunas of California is summarized and wherever possible compared with associated geologic phenomena such as lithologic facies, relative geographic distribution, observable structural features, and extra-foraminiferal faunal data. On the basis of the time relations of the associated phenomena summarized, the Miocene of California is classified into three separate geologic units of two distinct types, each unit having minor subdivisions of varying type and order of magnitude. Anomalies and similarities with the recorded Miocene history of Europe are briefly discussed.
