The nature of the Moho in Australia from reflection profiling: a review

Kennett, B. L. N.; Saygin, E.


The transition between the crust and mantle across the Australian continent shows considerable variations in both depth and sharpness. Recent extensive seismic reflection profiling provides a comprehensive data set to investigate the nature of the Moho in a wide range of geological environments.

This attribution to the base of the crust ties well to...[Show more]
