Abstract


Integrated bio- and magnetostratigraphic data from the Lower to Upper Berriasian of the pelagic succession at Barlya (Western Balkan, Bulgaria) are presented. The investigated interval, 24 m thick, covers the top of the Calpionella elliptica, Calpionellopsis simplex and Calpionellopsis oblonga subzones. Magnetozones from the upper part of M17r up to M16n were identified. The boundary between ­the Elliptica and Simplex subzones correlates with the lower part of M16r, while the boundary between the Simplex and Oblonga subzones is situated in the lower part of M16n. The magnetic susceptibility reveals an increasing trend from the middle part of M16r which accounts for the increasing supply of fine clastic sediments to the basin.
