      Abstract. Iron formations (IFs) are Fe-rich chemical sedimentary rocks that show a unique distribution through Precambrian time, with abundant deposition from approximately Ga, reaching a volumetric peak at Ga, disappearing at Ga and returning at to by: 1. In this chapter, I survey ideas of the concept of species, as they apply to the human evolutionary record. I discuss the question of the meaning of a genus, concluding that all species since the separation of the human line from that of the chimpanzee (and possibly including the chimpanzee lineage as well) should be placed in a single genus, for which the prior available name is Homo.

      Determination of highly siderophile element (HSE; Au, Pt, Pd, Ir, Os, Rh and Ru) concentrations in relatively unweathered and unaltered marine shales from the Barberton, Witwatersrand and Transvaal supergroups in the Kaapvaal Craton revealed systematic differences, interpreted to reflect secular changes in the HSE content of Mesoarchaean to Palaeoproterozoic Author: Glen T.

    The up to 12 m thick Transvaal Sequence was deposited unconformably on the Ventersdorp Sequence, and occurs in two connected depo-centres, the Transvaal and Griqualand West sub-basins, which define a x km, NE-SW elongated area of remaining exposure. This sequence originally covered an area of ~ sq. km. The point bar sequence: As a channel migrates, it often leaves a characteristic set of deposits behind called a point bar. The succession is coarsest at the base and displays a characteristic fining-upward : At any moment, the point-bar surface of the channel, from bottom to top, represents a time from bottom to top, energy (and coarseness of clasts) diminishes.
