Ultimate and proximate origins : tests based in the geomorphic evolution of the southeastern Gawler Craton and the Stuart and Spencer Shelves, South Australia

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The interpretation of various features and forms found on the Gawler Craton, and the adjacent Stuart and Spencer shelves, is considered and evaluated. It is concluded that evidence, and the inferences drawn from it, need to be definite, narrow, or precise to be usable; indeed in some instances, as when considering the origin of evolutionary forms, restricted and categoric conclusions may be inappropriate. It is possible to link landforms to events of the geologically distant past, and reasons are adduced for extending causation as far as is feasible at any particular moment of time
