Abstract: 

The Fahlian Formation is studied in two stratigraphic sections that are named, Kuh-e Gadvan and Kuh-e Ab Siah. Based on lithostratigraphic characteristics, the Fahlian Formation is divided into six lithostratigraphic units. Biostratigraphic limits of the Fahlian Formation are determined. Foraminiferal and algal remains constituents of the studied section are listed below:
pseudocyclammina lituus Yokoyama, P.gerigi Henson, Pseudochrysalidina arabica, Henson, P.conica Henson, Trochlina alpina , Leupold T.conica Schlumberger, T arabica, Schlumberger, T.sp., Dorothia sp., Gaudyrina sp., Marssomella cf trochus Cushman T.sp., Calpionella alpina Lorenz, Conoroboides sp., and calcareous algae in eluding: Salpingoporella annulata Crozzi, S.sp., Lithocodium sp., Actinoporella sp., and Litusepta sp. Foraminiferal studies indicate that biostratigraphic limits of the Fahlian Formation sections are Briasian to Hauterivian. Also six type microfacies in Kuh-e Gadvan and three type microfacies in Kuh-e Ab Siah are identified in the Fahlian Formation.
