The studied area is located in the southwestern part of Zagros fold and thrust belt, specifically in Kurdistan region-NE Iraq. Our research intended to constrain the basin evolution in the western segment of Neo-Tethys (Kermanshah basin) during the late Jurassic-early Cretaceous interval, as well as the characteristics of both the Tithonian-Berriasian and the Berriasian-Valanginian boundaries. With the use of stratigraphy (age determination and fundamental tectonostratigraphic methods), we have tried to constrain the basin models during this period. Nannofossil analyses were used for the biostratigraphic approach.
