..., the coastal sedimentary sequences, all part of the Broughton Island Formation, can be subdivided into six units to which informal member names have been assigned. These units delimit at least four glacial episodes during which local ice advanced around Broughton Island to the outer coast. The youngest advance...

... Member within the Broughton Formation from the southern Sydney Basin of southeastern Australia. They are composed of non-sheathed (PF1) and sheathed (PF2) sub-micron balls, respectively. Chemically, the sub-micron balls consist of iron, sulphur, carbon and oxygen. Both PF1 and PF2 occur in rhythmic...

...R. Gilbert Abstract Bathymetric and seismic surveys of the trough across the continental shelf of Baffin Island at Broughton Island indicate that there were four stages in its development. The first involved deposition of Cretaceous and early Tertiary marine sediments before and during formation...

...Alar Raam Abstract The Broughton Sandstone, a 500-foot thick horizontal sequence of Permian conglomerates, sandstones, and siltstones, interstratified with contemporaneous submarine volcanics (latites) occurs at Kiama, N.S.W. The sequence contains authigenic mineral assemblages characteristic...

... cycle. The Qivitu stratigraphic sequence is divided into two formations consisting of a total of seven members for which formal names are proposed. Sediments predating the two most recent interglacials are lithologically similar to later beds, suggesting that events during these earlier periods were...

... & Cotterill 2006 ). It is generally accepted that the dissolution stages resulted from subsurface water flows upwards into the Prairie Evaporite Formation salt beds ( Broughton 2013 , 2015 ; Hein et al. 2013 ). Uncertainty remains regarding the relative impact on the dissolution patterns of: (1...
