Abstract

The Santonian-Campanian boundary interval close to the village of Goynuk in northwestern Turkey (Bolu province) was recorded and examined with respect to nannofossil and foraminiferal biostratigraphy, magnetic polarity and magnetic susceptibility. During the Late Cretaceous, the Mudurnu-Goynuk Basin was located on the Sakarya continent situated in the northwestern Tethyan Realm, north of the Neo-Tethys.
