The aims of this study will be firstly to fill the gap in our knowledge of the taxonomic composition, distribution and (semi-)quantitative analysis of calcareous nannoplankton, foraminiferal and ostracod assemblages in the region. It will further provide valuable data to document the evolution of the South African continental shelf and to interpret palaeoenvironments from the Late Mesozoic and Cenozoic to the present. The study will for the first time generate high resolution data to produce a biostratigraphic zonal scheme for the eastern seaboard based entirely on calcareous nannofossils and to correlate this to existing standard and regional zonations based on calcareous nannofossils, foraminifers and ammonites.
