... that taphonomic mixing of other faunas has not occurred. The vertebrate fauna of the basal ICC is therefore essentially autochthonous, and indicates deeper water than the rest of the Qasr el-Sagha Formation, with rare land mammal remains representing allochthonous remains. Further evidence for the lack of derived...

Three marine formations, Gehannam, Birket Qarun, and Qasr el-Sagha, span the Priabonian here. GPS mapping and three-dimensional projection of formation boundaries show strata to strike N 42.8°E...

Bjørkum and Walderhaug (1990) proposed models for the formation of evenly spaced calcitic marine concretions based on a review of concretions from several locations. They suggested that the reason for the even spacing...
