    The Neogene (/ ˈ n iː. ə ˌ dʒ iː n, ˈ n iː. oʊ-/ NEE-ə-jeen, NEE-oh-) (informally Upper Tertiary or Late Tertiary) is a geologic period and system that spans million years from the end of the Paleogene Period million years ago to the beginning of the present Quaternary Period Mya. The Neogene is sub-divided into two epochs, the earlier Miocene and the later g: Western Iberia. Reliable palaeomagnetic data from the emerged margins of the Valencia trough include results from Triassic, Jurassic, Paleogene and Miocene rocks. From these data, a clockwise rotation of the Catalan Coastal ranges relative to the western part of Iberia is apparent. In addition, a clockwise rotation is indicated by the magnetic directions from the Balearics with respect to those of the Catalan.

    Most of western California was still underwater during the Paleogene, as evidenced by marine fossils, but continued to form and emerge throughout the Cenozoic. Fossil evidence indicates the first archaic mammals appeared in the Jurassic Period of the Mesozoic, approximately – Ma. Mammalia and Aves, evolutionarily constrained by predation and competition from non-avian Archosaurians. The Paleogene (/ ˈ p æ l. i. ə ˌ dʒ iː n,-i. oʊ-, ˈ p eɪ. l i-,-l i. oʊ-/ PAL-ee-ə-jeen, -⁠ee-oh-, PAY-lee-, -⁠lee-oh-; also spelled Palaeogene or Palæogene; informally Lower Tertiary or Early Tertiary) is a geologic period and system that spans 43 million years from the end of the Cretaceous Period 66 million years ago to the beginning of the Neogene Period g: Western Iberia.

      The first paper details our findings east of Turkey beneath the southern Caspian Sea. 1 Here, we found about 17 km ( mi) of Tertiary (Paleogene and Neogene) strata covering an area over miles wide. This is one of the thickest deposits of Tertiary sediment in the world, and all of it was deposited on top of Cretaceous and older rocks. Paleogene gas reservoirs in the Yingmai7 gas field contain high content of total hydrocarbon and low content of nonhydrocarbon (generally less than 5%). The aridity coefficient mainly varies from – (Table ).CH 4 content is –% and C 2 H 6 content is –%, indicating wet gas. In nonhydrocarbon gas, N 2 content is –%, and CO 2 content is –%.Missing: Western Iberia.

CHAPTER 5 - NEOGENE TECTONIC EVOLUTION OF THE IBERIAN PENINSULA AND WESTERN MEDITERRANEAN In this chapter the geological evolution of the study area from the Neogene up to present is presented in the same way as the Paleogene evolution has been described in the previous chapter, in maps for every 3Ma.

The major tectonic events during the Neogene. Over the last 65 Ma, our world assumed its modern shape. This timespan is divided into the Palaeogene Period, lasting from 65 to 23 Ma and the Neogene, which extends up to the present day (see Gradstein & Ogg () and Gregory et al.

Large mammal predators had not yet evolved early in the Paleogene so there was little competition and the big birds dominated. The Oceans And Lakes of the Paleogene. In the oceans, fish species branched out. Sharks became more g: Western Iberia.

The term Paleogene was devised in Europe to emphasize the similarity of marine fossils found in rocks of the first three Cenozoic epochs, as opposed to the later fossils of the Neogene Period (23 million to million years ago) and the Quaternary Period ( million years ago to the present).Missing: Western Iberia.

Over wide areas the rocks of the Khorat Plateau are flat-lying, but toward the plateau's western and southern rims the rocks dip inwards and are responsible for its broad dish-like structure.

First things first: the flightless prehistoric bird we now know as Gastornis used to be called Diatryma (Greek for "through a hole"), the name by which it was recognized by generations of schoolchildren.
