Integrated biostratigraphy of the Novi Pazar Campanian/Maastrichtian sequence (Vardar Zone)
Hemipelagic and pelagic sediments (=lower and middle part of the preflysch auct) outcropping in Mur section (Novi Pazar, Vardar Zone) have been subject of calcareous nannoplankton analysis. Four calcareous nannofossils zones were recognized in the studied sequence. The obtained data agree with biostratigraphic evidence coming from benthonic and planktonic forams. The consideration that flysch must be post-Maastrichtian in age is supported by calcareous nannoplankton indicating a Middle Eocene age of some samples coming from the flysch of Novi Pazar area.
