Abstract:

Relative sea level change is interpreted to be a significant control on accommodation space on the shelf. A low relative sea level is interpreted to account for extended periods of shelf exposure that enhanced turbidite generation. Spectral analysis of cyclically varying visual grain size estimates indicates coincidence of turbidite generation with changes in Earth's orbit on 40-400kyr timescales. This suggests that glacio-eustasy was a significant influence on turbidite deposition across the O-M boundary in the Waiau Basin.
