dc.description.abstract The continental red bed succession of the main Karoo Basin in South Africa and Lesotho, the Elliot Formation (Stormberg Group, Karoo Supergroup), is a significant stratigraphic unit for the regional and global understanding of the Late Triassic - Early Jurassic evolution of terrestrial vertebrate faunas, however, the temporal resolution of its biostratigraphy is inadequate for detailed regional and global correlations. The main aim of this dissertation is to build a more comprehensive chronostratigraphic framework of the Late Triassic - Early Jurassic Elliot Formation by combining and constraining its biostratigraphy with new results obtained using magnetostratigraphic techniques. This dissertation presents magnetostratigraphic data from ten measured stratigraphic sections in the Elliot Formation across the main Karoo Basin in South Africa and Lesotho. en_ZA
