STRATIGRAPHY OF THE LA MESETA FORMATION (EOCENE), MARAMBIO (SEYMOUR) ISLAND, ANTARCTICA
Abstract. La Meseta Formation is a discontinuity bounded sedimentary unit which crops out on Marambio (Seymour) and Cockburn islands, approximately 100 km SE of the northern tip of the Antarctic…

Provenance, environmental and paleogeographic controls on sandstone composition in an incised-valley system: the Eocene La Meseta Formation, Seymour Island, Antarctica
Record of Late Miocene glacial deposits on Isla Marambio (Seymour Island), Antarctic Peninsula
Abstract We report and describe two new small diamictite outcrops on Isla Marambio (Seymour Island), Antarctic Peninsula. These rocks rest on an erosional unconformity on top of the Eocene La Meseta…

The new taxon, here referred to the new family Woodburnodontidae, constitutes the second microbiotherian known from these Antarctic levels and age and confirms the association of representatives of this order within a common, Andean-Patagonian-Antarctic biogeographic region, already present since the Late Cretaceous.
Paleontology and sedimentology of Middle Eocene rocks in Lago Argentino area, Santa Cruz Province, Argentina
The similarities of this fauna with that recorded in the Upper Member of the Rio Turbio Formation, together with 87Sr/86Sr ages, suggest a late Middle Eocene age for the Man Aike Formation.
