Crasquin-Soleau, S.; Depeche, F. (1993): Paleoecology of ODP Leg 122 Triassic ostracodes (Wombat Plateau, NW Australia). Universite Claude Bernard, Departement de Geologie, Lyon, France, Geobios, 26 (3), 331-344, georefid:1993-034792

ODP Leg 122 drilled in the Indian Ocean off NW Australia reached the Triassic for the first time. Ostracodes wererecovered in 74 samples of 4 sites (122-759, 122-760, 122-761, 122-764). The ostracode associations show variations in the paleoenvironment. In Hole 122-759B paleoecological analysis shows an intertidal to infralittoral environment. In Hole 122-760B, abundance of Healdiidae should indicate a shallow warm water environment. The sediments of Hole 122-761C and Site 764 were deposited in open marine environment. A slight deepening is thus indicated during the Upper Triassic of this area.
