Title: Miocene Foraminifera of Gulf of Suez Region, Egypt

Author(s): Rushdi Said (2), M. A. Basiouni (3)


This paper discusses the spatial distribution of foraminifera in the region of the Gulf of Suez based on a detailed study of two sections in this area and on the re-examination of the distribution tables of foraminifera, recorded from numerous outcrops and well cuttings studied by Macfadyen (1930). The distribution suggests the presence of a sill that separated the Miocene Gulf of Suez embayment from the northern Tethys epicontinental sea and a southern basin, an environment coinciding with data obtained by sedimentational inferences and geophysical methods.
