Testing long-term patterns of basin sedimentation by detrital zircon geochronology, Centralian Superbasin, Australia

Maidment, David; Williams, Ian; Hand, Martin


Detrital zircon geochronology of Neoproterozoic to Devonian sedimentary rocks from the Georgina and Amadeus basins has been used to track changes in provenance that reflect the development and inversion of the former Australian Superbasin. Through much of the Neoproterozoic, sediments appear to have been predominantly derived from local sources in the Arunta and Musgrave inliers. Close similarities between the detrital age signatures of late Neoproterozoic sedimentary rocks in the two basins...[Show more]
