Abstract

The Lower Palaeozoic stratigraphy of the Kap Sparre Formation of Kulling (Hecla Hoek Succession) from Murchisonfjorden and eastern Nordaustlandet of Svalbard is described based on new field observations in the region. Additions to the previous descriptions of some of the existing units are presented. The new lithostratigraphical unit : a Lower(?) to Middle Cambrian Black shale and limestone unit is proposed informally. In addition, a Middle(?) Cambrian to Lower Ordovician Dolostone-limestone unit, and a (Lower to Middle(?) Ordovician) Limestone unit, which overlies the Upper dolomite series are added to the succession. The deposits as a whole show the development of an environmentally controlled carbonate platform that marked the transition from the inner to the outer shelf that evolved during the opening and spreading of the Iapetus Ocean
