Paleomagnetic data for Neoproterozoic glacial deposits in South Australia and elsewhere verify glaciomarine deposition near the paleoequator. Tidal rhythmites from such deposits in South Australia display symmetrical ripples indicating decades of continuous wave activity, and also record the annual oscillation of sea level. In low and moderate latitudes the annual oscillation of sea level results mostly from seasonal changes in heat content of the sea, indicating extensive and long-lived open… CONTINUE READING
