The most prevalent Phanerozoic glaciation occurred during the Carboniferous-Permian on the Southern Hemisphere Gondwana supercontinent. Sediments from the Pennsylvanian Dwyka Group deposited in the Karoo Basin of South Africa provide a complete record of glaciation and deglaciation phases. The direct correlation of glaciation events in southern Gondwana basins with the well-studied climate evolution of equatorial regions was previously hampered by lack of precise radiometric dating. As dating… CONTINUE READING
