Abstract

Bathymetric change is investigated within the transgressive phase of an extensive Early Cretaceous (Aptian-Albian) marine flooding of the Australian continent. Lithofacies and biofacies associations, found in nine outcrop sections and four continuously cored bore sections in the northeastern Eromanga Basin, are used to reconstruct depositional environments and to determine palaeobathymetry. Shoreface (c. 0-2 m water depth), transitional (c.
