Formatted Abstract/Summary
A wide range of previously used stratigraphic terms for Queensland’s terrestrial Quaternary deposits were mentioned by Woods (1960), but many are considered invalid and few are in modern usage (Molnar & Kurz 1997). By necessity, the following discussion focuses on the spatial and temporal occurrence of broad geological features, rather than specific formations and basins. This chapter will cover geological, palaeoclimatic and palaeontological aspects of:
• cave deposits
• fluvial systems
• lacustrine settings
• aeolian features
• weathering and soil formation
• volcanism
• offshore deposits.
