Composition and Microstructure of Agglutinated Foraminifer Wall

  • Vera M. Podobina
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (ASIC, volume 327)


The Upper Cretaceous complexes of Western Siberia are dominated by agglutinated foraminifers, which have been studied on the basis of rich material. The composition and microstructure of the agglutinated wall has been investigated in detail. Similiar secreted — agglutinating (intermediate) and secreted types of walls are discussed for comparison.
