Field observations and U-series ages reveal that Shark Bay, Western Australia (WA) has been inundated by the sea on at least three occasions during the Late Pleistocene/Holocene, resulting in a succession of marine deposits around the Bay. The exact age of these deposits has until now been problematic due to a lack of reliable and accurate age data. This study reports 16 new U-series coral dates from emergent reef deposits around Shark Bay, and point to an extended period of coral reef… CONTINUE READING
