Abstract

The lower Kapp Duner Formation on Bjornoya consists of two Palaeoaplysina bukldup complexes separated by a karst surfce, believed to represent a third order sequence boundary. The buildup complexes are composed of 3-10 m-thick, stacked, shallowing upward cycles of restricted shelf wackestone and Palaeoaplysina wackestone and packstone. Each cycle is terminated by an event of subaerial exposure related to fourth order fluctuations in sea level. -from Authors
