Title: Permo-Triassic Section in Central Iran: GEOLOGICAL NOTES

Author(s): Hushang Taraz (2)


An exceptionally thick and very fossiliferous Upper Permian-Lower Triassic marine transitional sequence has been discovered in the Abadeh region of Central Iran. The uppermost Permian of this section compares closely with the classic Julfa (FOOTNOTE 3) section, the stratotype of the latest Permian Dzhulfian (FOOTNOTE 4) Stage, which is about 1,100 km (683 mi) northwest of Abadeh. The Abadeh section, however, is thicker and possibly more complete than the Julfa section.
