Summary:Cyclicity and its hierarchy in the studied successions, and the role of eustatic and orbital events in the formation of these cyclic deposits, are defined to correlate sections in the peritidal domain of the W Taurides. Extensive use is made of microfacies and microscopical data, types of sedimentary structures and those at the binding surfaces of beds. The account is illustrated with numerous detailed vertical sections with lithologies. The chronostratigraphical value of parasequences (small-scale composite sequences), is shown in the correlation from platform to basin. [R.K.H.]
