Article
Otavi Group is a 1.5−3.5-km-thick epicontinental marine carbonate succession of Neoproterozoic age, exposed in an 800-km-long Ediacaran−Cambrian fold belt that rims the SW cape of Congo craton in northern Namibia. Along its southern margin, a contiguous distally tapered foreslope carbonate wedge of the same age is called Swakop Group. Swakop Group...

The Labrador Trough in northern Québec and Labrador is a 900 km-long Rhyacian–Orosirian orogenic belt containing mixed sedimentary-volcanic successions. Despite having been studied intensively since the 1940s, relatively few chemostratigraphic studies have been conducted. To improve our understanding of the Labrador Trough in the context of Earth h...

Carbonate sediments of nonglacial Cryogenian (659 to 649 Ma) and early Ediacaran (635 to 590 Ma) age exhibit large positive and negative δ ¹³ C carb excursions in a shallow-water marine platform in northern Namibia. The same excursions are recorded in fringing deep-sea fans and in carbonate platforms on other paleocontinents. However, coeval carbon...

During earthquake propagation, geologic faults lose their strength, then strengthen as slip slows and stops. Many slip-weakening mechanisms are active in the upper-mid crust, but healing is not always well-explained. Here we show that the distinct structure and rate-dependent properties of amorphous nanopowder (not silica gel) formed by grinding of...

Cryogenian synglacial deposits are regionally thin but locally thick, considering glacial duration, but the reasons for local thickening are poorly known. We studied three local thickenings of the Sturtian Chuos Formation in northern Namibia by measuring closely spaced columnar sections, not only of the synglacial deposits but also of the bounding...
