Summary

The integration of the Lennard Shelf sequence stratigraphy, isotope chemostratigraphy, organic geochemistry, and magnetostratigraphy datasets provides an unprecedented wealth of data for regional and global correlations of this carbonate-dominated margin.

These associations predict a link between carbonate slope architecture and basinal settings that will aid petroleum exploration of similar carbonate-hosted petroleum deposits.

Keywords: Lennard Shelf, chronostratigraphic framework, petroleum exploration
