  • Within the Palaeozoic sedimentary succession of the Falkland Islands the Fitzroy Tillite Formation is the local representative of glacigenic strata deposited widely across Gondwana during Late Carboniferous glaciation. In West Falkland, a terrestrial lithofacies contains a wide range of erratic pebbles, cobbles and boulders; in East Falkland a glaciomarine diamictite contains fewer and generally smaller clasts from a more restricted lithological range. At the top of the East Falkland succession… CONTINUE READING
