... ), with the outcrops at the far north of the basin characterized by the occurrence of rare basaltic sills, pillow lavas and rhyolitic sills/lavas, which were considered to be Oxfordian–Kimmeridgian (~ 155 Ma) in age (Macdonald et al . 1999 ). The Spartan Glacier Formation is approximately 1 km in thickness...

...) are exposed in the foreground, with the 2.2 km (1.4 mi)-thick channel-levee type section at Himalia Ridge (see also Figure 10 ) in the middle ground. Ganymede Heights is in the far distance, capped by a 950-m (3120-ft)-thick slope mudstone of the Spartan Glacier Formation. figure 7. North-south...

... Formation consists of radiolarian mudstones and tuff-rich interbeds of Kimmeridgian-Tithonian age; it correlates with Upper Jurassic organic-rich mudstone units throughout the proto-South Atlantic region. The succeeding 244 m thick Devils Point Formation marks the first major pulse of coarse volcaniclastic...

Crame pers. comm. 1998), based on similarities to specimens from the Spartan Glacier Formation of Alexander Island ( Fig. 1; Crame & Howlett 1988). Much of the succession consists of lithologically uniform mudstone, but some intervals include...

... the notion that each source-to-sink system has a unique threshold that must be exceeded to induce regional aggradation and subsequent terrace formation. The same is also inferred for timing of sediment dispersal to the deep-sea environment. In addition, preservation of onshore sediment is controlled by local...
