ADVANCES IN RESEARCH AND MAIN PROBLEMS OF STRATIGRAPHY OF THE JURASSIC DEPOSITS IN THE LESSER CAUCASUS (AZERBAIJAN)
Previously proposed schemes of the Jurassic stratigraphy of the Lesser Caucasus are critically reviewed. A number of of local and regional stratigraphic divisions not conforming to regulations of the stratigraphic code have been abolished. Based on more precise stratigraphic differentiation of some type sections a completely new differentiation scheme for the Jurassic deposits of the Lesser Caucasus is proposed. Major problems and tasks in study of the stratigraphy and fauna of the Jurassic in the Lesser Caucasus are considered. The book is dealing with the problems of tectonics, paleogeography, and regional stratigraphy.
