A new sedimentological interpretation for part of the Santa Marta Formation, James Ross Island

first_imgThe regional geology and lithostratigraphy of the Late Cretaceous strata of north-east James Ross Island have been described by a number of authors (e.g. Olivero et al. 1986, Pirrie 1989). The aim of this short note is to describe a sequence of strata currently assigned to the Santa Marta Formation, and to reinterpret the processes and environments of deposition of this sequence.last_img
