Abstract: This study presents the first attempt to recognize the planktonic foraminiferal biozones and to determine the time of deposition of the carbonate deposits exposed in the Zgaimat Al-Hasah anticline, Southeastern Jordan. Five equivalent planktonic foraminiferal biozones; Zones E3 (P6a), E4 (P6b), E5 (P7), E6 (P8), and E7 or E7a were identified by analyzing twenty-eight samples from a 20 m thick section. Ten planktonic foraminiferal species belonging to seven genera and thirteen benthic foraminiferal species representing eleven genera were recorded. An Early Eocene age was assigned to the carbonate deposits exposed in Zgaimat Al-Hasah anticline based on some typical index species of calcareous planktonic foraminifera.
