dc.description.abstractTidalites from the Cenomanian Nimar Sandstone, Bagh Group, Central India, are represented by (i) laterally accreted tidal bundles, (ii) herringbone cross-strata, (iii) sigmoidal cross-strata and (iv) tidal rhythmites with lenticular/wavy bedding. These indicate sedimentation in an upper subtidal to lower intertidal setting within fluvio marine interactive system. Time-series analysis of continuous rhythmic foreset bundles (sub-annual scale) manifests neap-spring tidal cycles within a diurnal tidal system with synodic and sidereal month lengths of ~28.4 lunar days and ~26.28 solar days respectively. Estimated Earth-Moon system parameters of the Late Cretaceous reveal no significant changes during the last ~100 Ma.-
