Deposits in southwestern Crimea that contain Late Albian, Middle Senomanian, and Middle Campanian volcanic material are described and dated. Supposedly volcanic edifices are identified in the Black Sea (the Shatsky Swell) based on seismic data. The Albian, Senomanian, and Campanian volcanic belts are reconstructed for the entire Black Sea Region. The suggestion is made that the Black Sea Basin formed as a back-arc basin that started from rifting in the Albian and finished with spreading of the oceanic crust in the Senomanian-Early Santonian. © 2013 Allerton Press, Inc.

The North Kara Basin has a supposedly thick Middle Ordovician to Early Devonian carbonate platform with diverse facies environments. Source rocks may be contained in Ordovician, Silurian and Devonian sediments. The North Kara Basin experienced compression at about the Devonian-Carboniferous boundary. The formation of most inverse structures is associated with this event. As early as at the regional phase of investigation, a significant number of promising features has been revealed in deposits of all Palaeozoic systems, with both anticlinal and stratigraphic and lithological potential traps. Presently, the northern part of the Kara Sea remains one of the least studied regions of the Barents-Kara Shelf.

A new lithostratigraphy scheme has been compiled for the Western Black Sea Basin and a new geological history scheme from Middle Jurassic till Neogene is suggested for the entire Black Sea Region. Continental rifting manifested itself from the Late Barremian to the Albian while the time of opening of the basins with oceanic crust was from Cenomanian till mid Santonian; origination of the Western and Eastern Black Sea Basins took place almost simultaneously. During Cenozoic time, numerous compressional and transpressional structures were formed in different part of the Black Sea Basins. It is shown that in Pleistocene-Quaternary time, turbidities, mass-transport deposits and leveed channels were being formed in the distal part of the Danube Delta. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. Source

This work is based upon results of interpretation of about 8872km-long regional seismic lines acquired in 2011 within the international project Geology Without Limits in the Black Sea. The seismic lines cover nearly the entire Black Sea Basins, including Russia, Turkey, Ukraine, Romania and Bulgaria sectors. A new map of acoustic basement relief and a new tectonic structure scheme are constructed for the Black Sea Basins. The basement of the Black Sea includes areas with oceanic crust and areas with highly rifted continental crust. A chain of buried seamounts, which were interpreted as submarine volcanoes of Late Cretaceous (Santonian to Campanian) age, has been identified to the north of the Turkish coast. On the Shatsky Ridge, probable volcanoes of Albian age have also been recognized. Synorogenic turbidite sequences of Paleocene, Eocene and Oligocene ages have been mapped. In the Cenozoic, numerous compressional and transpressional structures were formed in different parts of the Black Sea Basin. During the Pleistocene-Quaternary, turbidites, mass-transport deposits and leveed channels were formed in the distal part of the Danube Delta. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd. Source
