    Introduction The Tumblagooda Sandstone is a fluvially dominated red-bed sequence of probable Late Silurian age. In its type section in the Murchison River gorge and in sea cliffs south of Kalbarri (Fig. 1) an aggregate thickness of over 1 km is by: The trace fossils of the Tumblagooda Sandstone (?late Silurian) of Kalbarri, Western Australia are spectacular in their variety and preservation. They provide a unique insight into the activities of the early invaders of terrestrial environments, and reveal the presence of a diverse fauna dominated by arthropods. Within the Formation trace fossil assemblages can be related to fluvial, aeolian.

Abstract. A magnetic polarity reversal near the top of the Tumblagooda Sandstone, in the Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia, has been intensively investigated in five coastal sections and four inland sections, all located near the top of the formation. A further four inland sections towards the base of the formation were also sampled.

The Tumblagooda Sandstone underlies dolomite, limestone and evaporites from the Silurian, in the subsurface, of shallow marine origin. Low dips characterise these units, that extend across the basin, with the exception of the easternmost part (Hocking et al., ; Iasky et al., ).

Whilst acknowledging the geological evidence for a Silurian age of the Tumblagooda Sandstone of Western Australia, this article draws attention to palaeomagnetic data which suggest a significantly older age. The pole position from the Tumblagooda Sandstone provides a strong constraint on the location of the Australian Palaeozoic apparent polar wander path (APWP), and by inference Cited by: Tumblagooda Sandstone Formationin Western Australia.

A magnetic polarity reversal near the top of the Tumblagooda Sandstone, in the Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia, has been intensively investigated in five coastal sections and four inland sections, all located near the top of the formation.

A further four inland sections towards the base of the formation were also by: Other important limestone units that were more-restricted in Silurian time and space include the Wenlock Limestone (Shropshire, Eng.), the Ryterraker Formation (southern Norway), the Xiangshuyan Formation and lateral equivalents (South China), and the Hume Limestone (New South Wales.

The Tumblagooda Sandstone (late Silurian) includes facies of mixed fluvial and aeolian sandsheet origin. It is over 1 km thick in the type outcrop area and comprises quartz-rich medium to coarse grained red-bed sandstones which are thought to rest unconformably on metamorphic basement.

Introduction An earlier palaeomagnetic investigation (Em- bleton and Giddings, ) of the Tumblagooda Sandstone of Western Australia detected the pres- ence of a reversal in polarity of the remanent magnetization. This formation is a prominent red bed unit outcropping in gorges along the coast and banks of the Murchison River.

Ichnofossils of the Tumblagooda Sandstone are comparable to those of the Devonian Taylor Group in Antarctica and the Ordovician–Silurian Mereenie Sandstone at Kings Canyon in central Australia. The majority of traces in the Tumblagooda Sandstone were formed by animals living under water, called aquatic or subaqueous.

such, the Tumblagooda Sandstone records the first sedimentological evidence for the initiation of this rifting along the western Australia margin during the early Paleozoic. The Tumblagooda Sandstone is dominated by iron oxide-rich quartz arenites that have variously been interpreted as having been deposited largely in aFile Size: 4MB.
