Abstract

Sedimentary features characteristic of ice-rafting are present in the Bunyeroo Formation (Wilpena Group) of the Adelaide Geosyncline and in the coeval Dey Dey Mudstone (Ungoolya Group) of the eastern Officer Basin (Figs 66.1 & 66.2), providing evidence of a mid-Ediacaran glacial climate in South Australia. The Acraman asteroid impact, a negative shift in marine δ13C, and a major acritarch turnover coincided with this frigid epoch.
