Abstract

Three formations exposed in the Giralia Anticline record the transition from siliciclastic to carbonate-dominated sedimentation on the Southern Carnarvon Platform, a stable shelf on the passive western Australian continental margin. The succession consists of condensed and partly eroded sequences that record maximum marine flooding events and the unconformities between them. The stratigraphic record of the depositional change is evident in four
