Distribution of Palaeozoic reworking in the Western Arunta Region and northwestern Amadeus Basin from40Ar/39Ar thermochronology: implications for the evolution of intracratonic basins

McLaren, Sandra; Sandiford, Michael. A; Dunlap, William James; Scrimgeour, Ian; Close, Dorothy; Edgoose, Christine


The Centralian Superbasin in central Australia is one of the most extensive intracratonic basins known from a stable continental setting, but the factors controlling its formation and subsequent structural dismemberment continue to be debated. Argon thermochronology of K-feldspar, sensitive to a broad range of temperatures (∼150 to 350°C), provides evidence for the former extent and thickness of the superbasin and points toward thickening of the superbasin succession over the now exhumed Arunta...[Show more]
