This paper presents the results of petromagnetic studies on Pliocene key sections of Crimea, Georgia, the Apscheron Peninsula and the North Cis-Caspian Region. Scalar magnetic characteristics of sedimentary rocks reflects the conditions they have been formed in the eastern Para-Tethys. The Pliocene activation is recorded by increased rock magnetism in the middle Pliocene. The dependence of petromagnetic variations upon tectonic factors allows to correlate the marine Pliocene succession from the Ponto-Caspian District.
