Sequence Stratigraphy of Paleocene Sediments of Pondicherry area, Cauvery Basin, South India, Tamil Nadu

N. Malarkodi [3]


Abstract: The The present study focuses on understanding the sequence stratigraphic framework of Ravathamkuppam pond section to analyze the micropaleontological - ichnological aspects in order to determine the depositional environment and sea level changes during the Lower Tertiary period in the Cauvery Basin. The Ravathamkuppam pond section consists of fine grained calcareous sandstone with abundant foraminiferal assemblage and rare ichnofossils indicating marine flooding event representing the Transgressive Systems Tract and High Stand Systems Tract assemblage indicates a gradual upward increase of Palaeobathymetry
