...Dennis V. Kent; Christian Dupuis Abstract A paleomagnetic study of the Paleocene-Eocene Esna Shale and Tarawan Chalk at the Dababiya and Qreiya sections near Luxor in central Egypt reveals stable normal and reverse polarity magnetizations. However, these (neritic) pelagic marine sediments have...

... that the writer read El-Naggar’s paper (1966a) on the stratigraphy of the Esna Shale of Egypt which has in recent years been the subject of attention by scholars both in Egypt and abroad. Thanks to these efforts the long controversial problems of the definition, zonation, age, and regional correlation...

...). In the last reference, it is clearly stated (p. 356) that “… El-Naggar, in his work on the type section of the Esna Shales at Gebel Owaina in Upper Egypt (Ms.) has distinguished three zones in the Paleocene on the basis of the planktonic foraminifera. These zones can also be distinguished in world-wide...

...Z. R. El-Naggar ABSTRACT The Esna Shale of the Esna-Idfu region, Nile Valley, Upper Egypt, long has been treated as a single formation. Lithological and paleontological data justify raising the Esna to group status and subdividing it into two formations, the Sharawna Shale (Maestrichtian), below...

...Rushdi Said; H. Sabry Abstract "Describes and illustrates the planktonic foraminifera separated from 228 samples collected from the classic section of Gebel Aweina, Egypt, which is taken as the type locality of the Esna shale. The analysis of this large series of samples makes possible the zonation...

...William A. Berggren; Khaled Ouda Abstract We describe the upper Paleocene-lower Eocene planktonic foraminiferal biostratigraphy at Qreiya (southeastern exposure of Gebel Abu Had), about 50km ENE of Qena, Egypt. The ~54m thick section spans the Tarawan Chalk (~8.6m thick; Zone P4a+b) and the Esna...

.../Eocene boundary. The measured (composite) section extends from the Tarawan Chalk (Zone P4), through the Esna Shale (Zone P4c, P5-8) to the basal Thebes Limestone (Zone P8). Midway-type benthic foraminiferal faunas extend throughout the section and suggest deposition at mid-outer neritic depths...

... lithostratigraphic unit in a typical succession of five characteristic beds that can be followed throughout Upper Egypt, and at the base of which the GSSP is defined. We formally describe this unit as the Dababiya Quarry Beds at the same time as we subdivide the Esna Shale Formation into three formal...

... is considered one of the most complete sections across the K/P boundary in Egypt where all the exposed rocks at G. El Keeh belong to the lower Eocene Egma Formation. A nearly complete sucession of Paleocene nannofossil biozones is recorded from the Esna Formation at G. El Mishiti. They are arranged from base...
