The submarine fan/channel complex of the Eocene Ainsa System in the south-central Pyrenees, Spain is in the process of being analysed for its microfossil content. The aims of this analysis are to establish the age and palaeoenvironment of the system, and to investigate whether the different types of (channel axis, off-axis and levee/overbank) sub-environments that it contains can be discriminated using micropalaeontological criteria, thus contributing to a hydrocarbon reservoir analogue model. This paper presents some preliminary observations.
