Description :
Detailed petrographic mineralogic and geochemical analysis of carbonates indicate deposition in marine inter-tidal flats where abundant terrigenous material was brought in by a river estuary. High tides caused mixing of marine and continental sediments. The sea encroached and widened from the Indo-Australian Gulf in early Jurassic times. The formation is classified here as a distinct marine unit in the Upper Gondwana formations of peninsular India.
