Palynology of the Jaintia Group (Palaeocene-Eocene) exposed along Jowai-Sonapur Road, Meghalaya, India (Part II). Data analysis and interpretations
Keywords:Palynology, Stratigraphy, Jaintia Group, Palaeocene-Eocene (India)
The palynoflora recovered from the Jaintia Group (Palaeocene-Eocene) exposed along the road between Jowai and Sonapur, Jaintia Hills have been dated and compared with various Lower Tertiary palynological assemblages. The present studies support tropical to subtropical vegetation during the Palaeocene-Eocene times. It has also been inferred that the Jaintia Group sediments were deposited under shallow marine conditions.
