Abstract
    Biostratigraphical correlations, mainly based on foraminiferal faunas, are proposed for Palaeogene sediments in the Southern Bight of the North Sea. The data available for correlation were: the foraminiferal zonation scheme for the Dutch onshore Palaeogene deposits established by Doppert and Neele (1983), the microfaunal zonation of the Eocene-Oligocene strata in the offshore IGS Borehole 79/06 proposed by Hughes (1981) and the succession of foraminiferal assemblages in the Palaeogene in Northwest Belgium (Flanders area) compiled by Willems (in press). The correlation between the Middle Oligocene series in the IGS borehole section and those in the Dutch and Flanders areas respectively is only general as the biostratigraphy of these series is worked out in more detail in the offshore than in the onshore region. The reverse is true for the Late and Middle Eocene sequences. The correlation between the Dutch and the Flanders onshore sections is fairly well possible except for the Late and latest Eocene and earliest Oligocene.
