...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...

... of Egypt but this format can hardly serve as published documentation (cf. El Naggar 1966 ). There were several suggestions to abandon the term Esna in a strict formational sense and replace it with a facies connotation. This was done by Youssef (1954) who introduced the term “Esna Shale Facies” for what...

...Z. R. El-Naggar Abstract A detailed study of the Esna shale in the Esna-Idfu type area in the Nile valley of upper Egypt proves it to be a group divisible into two formations, the underlying Sharawna shale of Maestrichtian age, and the overlying Owaina shale of Paleocene age, each comprising three...

...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...

The floor of the wadis is also covered by Recent wadi filling consisting of irregular angular limestone and flint fragments of different sizes embedded in sands and finer calcareous debris. The Dakhla Shale and the Esna Shale are separated by a snow-white to grayish...

... 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...
