The Stratigraphical Significance of Trace Fossils
Trace fossils have many uses in stratigraphy. Short-ranging forms can date otherwise unfossiliferous successions, as exemplified here by lower Paleozoic successions in Europe and North America. Trace
Preservation of Trace Fossils
Trace fossils are normally preserved at or near interfaces, as a result of burrowing or crawling activity along the junction of successive beds of different lithology. The traces may be enhanced by
Trace Fossils in Carbonate Rocks
Most terrigenous clastic sequences have calcareous equivalents, and trace fossil suites well known from terrigenous clastic sediments have their counterparts in carbonates. Well-studied examples
Trace Fossil Assemblages in Leg 66 Sediments
Leg 66 drilling across the Middle America Trench provides an opportunity to study trace fossil distribution across an active margin. Variations in sedimentation rate and water depth, and higher
Trace fossils as environmental indicators in the Corallian of England and Normandy
The distribution of trace fossils in Corallian (Upper Jurassic) rocks has been studied in three coastal areas in Yorkshire, Dorset, and Normandy. Three trace fossil associations, primarily related to
Trace Fossils from the Permo-Triassic of Arran
Synopsis The first identifiable trace fossils recorded in the Permo-Triassic of Arran come from an exposure within the Auchenhew Beds near King’s Cave on the west coast. The forms cf. “Siphonites”,

Abstract The Lower Permian Snapper Point Formation at its type locality in the southern Sydney Basin is interpreted as a regressive sequence of a linear clastic shoreline. Lithologies, sedimentary
Ichnological Characteristics of Brackish Water Deposits
Four coarsening upward parasequences, ranging in thickness from 4 to 17m are present in an Upper Mannville (Aptian to early Albian) core from east central Alberta. These parasequences are composed of


Paleontological Studies on Turbidite Sedimentation and Erosiona
The postdepositional sole trails of Flysch psammites occur only in thinner beds up to a thickness particular to each species. This proves instantaneous deposition of the individual beds, as
The trace fossils of the Baggy Beds (Upper Devonian) of North Devon, England
The trace fossils of the Baggy Beds are described. They includeTeichichnus cf.rectusSeilacher,Monocraterion cf.tentaculatumTorell,Diplocraterion yoyo sp. nov.,Arenicolites curvatus sp. nov., and
Flysch and associated beds of the Martinsburg Formation (Ordovician), central Appalachians
ABSTRACT Sedimentary attributes of the Martinsburg (Ordovician) Formation were studied between Staunton, Virginia, and Kingston, New York, Graded bedding, sole marks, intraformational shale
A Wandering Enteropneust from the Abyssal Pacific, and the Distribution of "Spiral" Tracks on the Sea Floor
Certain coiled tracks appear in photographs from the bottom of most oceans and are abundant in some regions although, despite earlier evidence, they are rarely considered to be either active or abyssal.
Burrows of Callianassa major Say, geologic indicators of littoral and shallow neritic environments
Burrows of the marine decapod, Callianassa major Say, are important structures in sand beaches along the coast from Florida to North Carolina. Abundant burrows, whose physical characteristics are
