Palynological data on the description of the Gelasian and Calabriane analogues in the strato- type section of the Kuyalnik deposits near Kryzhanivka village (Odessa region)


Keywords: Gelasian, Calabriane, continental deposits, liman-marine sediments, spore-pollen analysis, Ukraine

Abstract

The state of paleontological study of the Kuyalnik deposits of Odessa region,   in particular the stratotype section near Kryzhanivka village was analyzed. Attention is paid to the absence of the palynological description of the Krizhanivka climatolith in the section and the insufficient palynological study of the liman-marine Kuyalnik sediments. The goal of the presented research was to obtain a detailed palynological description of the subaerial Eopleistocene and the liman- marine Kuyalnik sediments of the stratotype section near Kryzhanivka village. Based on the results of the research, the palynological description of rocks of the upper part of the section of the liman-marine Kuyalnik sediments is presented for the first time, as well as the materials to substantiate the correlation of the studied sediments with the Beregove and Siversk climatolyths of the continental Upper Cenozoic section of Ukraine, which correspond to the Gelasian of the International Stratigraphic Scale (ISS). For the first time, palynological description of the Kryzhanivka climatolith correlated with the Calabriane of the ISS is presented for the studied section. Three subcomplexes are described in the composition of the Kryzhanivka complex. The characteristic features of the Kryzhanivka spore-pollen complex (SPC) and the changes in the ecological structure of each subcomplex are determined. Correlation of the established complex with the even-aged SPC of the Kryzhanivka deposits of the southern part of the Ukrainian Shield (the Eastern Azov Sea region). Outstanding questions of stratigraphic division of different facial deposits of the section based on palynological data are outlined. The necessity of further palynological studies of deposits of the section near Kryzhanivka village is substantiated.
