Arc-continent collision and orogenesis in western Tasmanides: Insights from reactivated basement structures and formation of an ocean-continent transform boundary off western Tasmania

Gibson, George M; Morse, M.P.; Nayak, G.K.; Ireland, Trevor


Crustal architecture in formerly contiguous basement terranes in SE Australia, Tasmania and northern Victoria Land is a legacy of late Neoproterozoic-Cambrian subduction-related processes, culminating in formation of the Delamerian-Ross orogen. Structures of Delamerian-Ross age were subsequently reactivated during late Mesozoic-Cenozoic Gondwana breakup, strongly influencing the geometry of continental rifting and providing clues about the origins and configuration of the pre-existing basement...[Show more]
