The Paleocene sedimentary sequences of the Faroe-Shetland Basin, northeast Atlantic, contain abundant palynomorphs (algae, pollen and spores). While one component of the palynoflora, the dinoflagellate cysts, has been used as the basis for biostratigraphical subdivisions of the succession, the terriginous palynoflora is the more abundant. This terriginous component was derived from two primary sources. The first, and most common source has an angiosperm palynoflora dominated by hickory types (Momipites species), which occur in association with plane-types (various Tricolpites species) and Ginkgo. This palynoflora occurs commonly in most Faroe-Shetland Basin wells throughout the early and mid-Paleocene succession. A...
