Neoproterozoic snowball earth under scrutiny: Evidence from the Fiq glaciation of Oman

Abstract:

The Fiq Member of the Ghadir Manqil Formation, Huqf Supergroup, Oman, is composed of ∼1.5 km of glacial rainout diamictites, mass-flow deposits, turbiditic sandstones, and slope and shelf sandstones and siltstones, overlain by a classic <10-m-thick transgressive cap dolostone. Paleocurrents, facies distribution, and subsurface imagery show that the Fiq Member was deposited in a series of extensional half-grabens and grabens.
