    Abstract

    Improved biostratigraphic control of the intracratonic shelf sediments of the Australian Georgina, Amadeus and Canning Basins has led to the recognition of a series of transgressive-regressive sediment packages. In the Georgina and Amadeus Basins of central Australia a series of 11 sea level events can be recognised in the interval extending from the base of the Payntonian (Late Cambrian) to the lower part of the Arenig (Early Ordovician). These include the previously recognized Lange Ranch, Black Mountain and Kelly Creek Eustatic Events, and an additional eight events that are either unnamed or have not previously been recognised in Australia. These are correlated with eustatic events in Scandinavia. -from Authors
