Abstract

The margin of the northeastern Black Sea is formed by the Crimea and Kerch peninsulas, which separate it from the Azov Sea to the north. The age and architecture of the sedimentary successions in this area are described from exploration reflection seismic profiling acquired in the area, in addition to the regional DOBRE-2 CDP profile acquired in 2007. The sediments range in age from Mesozoic to Quaternary and can be divided into five seismo-stratigraphic complexes linked to the tectono-sedimentological evolution of the area. The present regional basin architecture consists of a series of basement structural highs separating a series of sedimentary depocentres and is mainly a consequence of the compressional tectonic regime affecting the area since the Eocene. This has focused shortening deformation and uplift along the axis of the Crimea–Caucasus Inversion Zone on the Kerch Peninsula and Kerch Shelf of the Black Sea. Two major sedimentary basins that mainly formed during this time – the Sorokin Trough in the Black Sea and the Indolo-Kuban Trough to the north of the Kerch Peninsula in the Azov Sea – formed as marginal troughs to the main inversion zone.
