Micropalaeontological evidence for Late Quaternary sea-level changes in Bonaparte Gulf, Australia

De Deckker, Patrick; Yokoyama, Yusuke


The shallow seas surrounding Northern Australia, far away from former ice sheets and on a tectonically stable margin, is ideally suited for sea-level reconstructions as hydro-isostatic effects there are minimal. Detailed examination of ostracod and foraminifer remains, recovered from gravity core RS176/GC 5 from Bonaparte Gulf, and which is located at 118 m water depth, provides a detailed history of sea-level transgression coinciding with the end of Last Glacial Maximum [LGM]. For the period...[Show more]
