The Helderberg Group of New York State, consisting of a wide range of shallow water carbonate lithologies, contains one of the finest and most complete stratigraphic records of Lower Devonian earth history. High-frequency spatial and temporal rhythmicity of carbonate accumulation in the Helderberg Group has been evaluated by examining thickness frequency distributions of individual sedimentation units in flasered ribbon rock and of individual lithofacies elements. These distributions provide… CONTINUE READING
