Using surface regolith geochemistry to map the major crustal blocks of the Australian continent

Grunsky, E. C.; de Caritat, Patrice; Mueller, U. A.


Multi-element near-surface geochemistry from the National Geochemical Survey of Australia has been evaluated in the context of mapping the exposed to deeply buried major crustal blocks of the Australian continent. The major crustal blocks, interpreted from geophysical and geological data, reflect distinct tectonic domains comprised of early Archean to recent Cenozoic igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rock assemblages. The geochemical data have been treated as compositional data to uniquely...[Show more]
