Biostratigraphic and Geological Significance of Planktonic Foraminifera
by Marcelle K. BouDagher-Fadel
Publisher: UCL Press 2015
Number of pages: 320
The role of fossil planktonic foraminifera as markers for biostratigraphical zonation and correlation underpins most drilling of marine sedimentary sequences and is key to hydrocarbon exploration. The first - and only - book to synthesize the whole biostratigraphic and geological usefulness of planktonic foraminifera, unifies existing biostratigraphic schemes and provides an improved correlation reflecting regional biogeographies.

The U.S. ranks third, behind Indonesia and Japan, in the number of historically active volcanoes. A few volcanoes have produced some of the largest and most dangerous types of eruptions in this century, while several others have threatened to erupt.
