Abstract: 

This study is based on primary lithological data from 96 boreholes and lithostratigraphic interpretation of 17 seismic profiles from the onshore part of the Dolna Kamchiya Basin, which belongs to the onshore sector of the Moesian Platform and comprises the south-easternmost part of the Southern platform zone. Nine formal Paleogene lithostratigraphic units were recognized (the Byala, Komarevo, Dvoynitsa, Beloslav, Dikilitash, Aladan, Avren formations, the Dolni Chiflik Member of the Avren Formation, and the Ruslar Formation). For visualization of their spatial relationships and revealing the deep structure of the basin, a 3D lithological model was created. In addition, new data on the lithology, thicknesses and ages of the units were provided.
