Throughout the last glacial cycle, the region between Australia and New Guinea, which is today known as the Gulf of Carpentaria, has oscillated from open shallow marine conditions to a large, land-locked freshwater lake, including periods of subaerial exposure. Ostracod faunal assemblages and variations in the valve morphology, preserved in the sediments of the gulf, record these changes.
