The storm-dominated, high-energy, cool-water Lincoln Shelf occupies the central part of the southern Australian continental margin. Carbonate sediments on this modern distally-steepened ramp were produced by slow deposition during the Terminal Quaternary Sea-level Cycle (0 75 Ka), a high-amplitude, asymmetric cycle of sea-level change. The 50 to 150-mwd (meters water depth), 120-170 km-wide surface is a rocky substrate covered by a patchy, m-scale, palimpsest sediment veneer composed mostly of bryozoans, molluscs, foraminifers and coralline algae.

Facies of the condensed Terminal Quaternary Sequence are interpreted to reflect accumulation during different parts of the Terminal Quaternary Sea-level Cycle that are now...
