Beaumont, H., Burley, S., Gould, T., & Clarke, S. (2018, December). Provenance of lower cretaceous quartz arenites from the northern Indian Plate: Tropical weathering or a multi-cycled sediment source?. Poster presented at British Sedimentological Research Group, AGM

Introduction. Lower Cretaceous sediments of the northwestern Indian Plate margin were deposited in the Barmer, Cambay, Narmada, Kachchh and Jaisalmer basins (Figure 1) of the West Indian Rift System (WIRS) and the Lower and Middle Indus Basins (LMIB...

Fluvial strata of the Lower Cretaceous Ghaggar-Hakra Formation are exposed in fault blocks on the central-eastern margin of the Barmer Basin, Rajasthan. The sedimentology of these outcrops is described from 114 logs (thicknesses up to 100 m) and 53 t...

The Cretaceous of NW India is poorly known from sparse outcrops in Rajasthan and Gujarat. Here, we describe the stratigraphy and sedimentology of outcrops of the Ghaggar-Hakra Formation of probable Lower Cretaceous age from the Sarnoo Hills, eastern...
