.... These beds were deposited during shallow-marine conditions and show a petrographic composition comparable to the Carolinefjellet Formation of Svalbard. The thickness of the Lower Cretaceous section is almost 1000 m. Organic geo-chemical analyses of the Aptian–lower Albian rocks suggest a post-Early...

... Worsley et al. (1988) . The Rurikfjellet Formation is overlain by the 100–150-m-thick, medium to coarse-grained, fluviodeltaic quartzose Helvetiafjellet Formation (Barremian). The succeeding fine-grained, feldspathic, shallow marine Carolinefjellet Formation (Aptian-Albian) is up to 850 m thick...

..., and Carolinefjellet formations ( Parker, 1967 ). The Rurikfjellet Formation records regional regression, which culminates in the Early Cretaceous with a short-duration (1–3 m.y.) subaerial exposure, represented in the stratigraphy as a depositional hiatus ( Maher, 2001 ; Midtkandal et al., 2008 ; Grundvåg...
