  • The Cretaceous Etjo Formation is a 200-m-thick eolian and fluvial sandstone succession exposed in the Huab Basin of northwestern Namibia. Eolian sedimentation was terminated abruptly by the emplacement of flood basalts of the Etendeka igneous province across much of the basin at 132 ± 1 Ma. The lavas “drowned” the dunes and, in doing so, preserved bed forms with heights and wavelengths of up to 100 m and 1.3 km, respectively. Subsequent erosion has resulted in the exposure of these bed forms… CONTINUE READING
