In 1,028m of water, Abu Sir 2X was drilled to 4,012m and reached pay in Pliocene
and Miocene sandstones.
The new material described from Attock confirms the existence of the various sized hipparionine in the Late Miocene - Early Pliocene
of the Potwar Plateau in Pakistan.
We consider this a fairly possible record of section Phaestoglochin whose occurrence in the Pliocene
could be eventually confirmed by the Russian material in need of study (Appendix S1).
Consequently, the Mid Pliocene
has been considered to be a historical analogue for current warming, providing an example of climate system dynamics for planet Earth with atmospheric C[O.
In the Iberian Peninsula several Late Miocene and Early Pliocene
localities have yielded remains of Debruijnimys Castillo and Agusti, 1996 (see Agusti and Casanovas-Vilar, 2003 and Minwer-Barakat et al.
The presence of a long-tailed shrew at PCS, in the latest Miocene or early Pliocene
continental interior of mid-latitude eastern North America, well prior to the late Pliocene
initiation of glaciation in the northern hemisphere, suggests the presence of a relatively cool, moist microhabitat, probably including woodland, at least somewhere in the vicinity of the Pipe Creek Sinkhole during the latest Hemphillian land mammal age.
The NEA 3x discovery well is located approximately 40 km north of Alexandria and was drilled to a total depth of 3,055 m and encountered gas in a lower Pliocene
sand in the Kafr El Sheik formation.
Northumbria University academic Ulrich Salzmann is using pollen and plant microfossils from sediment cores and rocks to construct a picture of vegetation in the late Pliocene
Dana has assessed that this area is prospective in both the Pliocene
play, analogous to Dana's two gas discoveries in the West El Burulus concession (WEB-1 and Papyrus), as well as having further prospective in the deeper high pressure horizons.
Topics include a new geological map of Stromboli volcano in Italy's Tyrrhenian Sea based on application of a lithostratigraphic and unconformity-bounded stratigraphic (UBS) units, a revised volcanostratigraphy of the Upper Miocene to Lower Pliocene
Urgup formation in the central Anatolian volcanic province of Turkey, ignimbrite stratigraphy and chronology on Tercerira Island in the Azores, geologic mapping of Mexico's Colima volcanic complex and implications for hazard assessment, and probabilistic digital hazard maps for avalanches and massive pyroclastic flow using TITAN2D computational model.
Some of the oldest volcanic rocks found in the governorate date back to the Miocene and Pliocene
Here, we document the partial fossil skeleton of a baleen whale from Pliocene
strata in western Nicaragua (Fig.
