Senonian rocks in Israel consist predominantly of homogenous chalk containing abundant nanno- and micro-fauna as well as horizons rich in megafossils. A synthesis of all available faunal data for the Senonian of Israel and the Levant indicates a series of transgressions and regressions. The sea level fluctuations are compared to the known global sea level data for the Senonian. A good correspondence is established between Israel and the global pattern throughout the entire interval with the exception of the Maastrichtian.
