Evolution of the intracratonic Officer Basin, central Australia: implications from subsidnce analysis and gravity modelling.

Haddad, D; Watts, Anthony D; Lindsay, John

Description

The intracratonic basins of central Australia are distinguished by their large negative Bouguer gravity anomalies, despite the absence of any significant topography. Over the Neoproterozoic to Palaeozoic Officer Basin, the anomalies attain a peak negative amplitude in excess of 150 mGal, amongst the largest of continental anomalies observed on Earth. Using well data from the Officer and Amadeus basins and a data grid of sedimentary thicknesses from the eastern Officer Basin, we have assessed...[Show more]
