ABSTRACT

The Judean Mountains’ anticlinorium, Israel, a part of the Syrian Arc fold system, underwent several phases of compressional folding, uplift and faulting in post-Turonian through Quaternary times. This study emphasizes the earliest tectonic phase of earIy Late Coniacian age. Ostracode biozonation clearly indicates the duration and extension of Senonian sedimentation and timing of onlap over the evolving Judean Mountains’ structure.
