The effect of the paleoclimatic and paleoenvironmental changes on the structure of the biotic

communities are stronger and better recorded in the shelf area than in the open sea. The present study is

devoted to impact of climatic events on some species of calcareous nannofossils. For this reason, 17

samples of surface sediments of the Persian Gulf were studied. Preservation of calcareous nannofossils in

surface sediment samples was good and the dominant species were

huxleyi, Helicosphaera carteri

Holocene sediments in the study area were deposited in the warm water and the Persian Gulf was a

shallow and hyposaline basin in which productivity of calcareous nannofossils was high.
