Lithostratigraphy and Microfacies Analysis of the Serikagni Formation Type Section, in Bara Village, Sinjar Area, NW Iraq


The type section of Serikagni Formation is studied near Bara village, northwestern Iraq. Thin section study and field observations allow the recognition of four sedimentary facies and two sedimentary cycles. Their correlation with other geological sections in Sinjar basin permits the lower cycle to be affiliated to Ibrahim Formation and the upper cycle representing Serikagni Formation.
