Pre-existing basement structure and its influence on continental rifting and fracture zone development along Australia's southern rifted margin

Gibson, George M; Totterdell, J M; White, Lloyd; Mitchell, C; Stacey, A R; Morse, Michael; Whitaker, A


Palaeogeographical reconstructions of the Australian and Antarctic margins based on matching basement structures are commonly difficult to reconcile with those derived from ocean-floor magnetic anomalies and plate vectors. Following identification of a previously unmapped crustal-scale structure in the southern part of the early Palaeozoic Delamerian orogen (Coorong Shear Zone), a more tightly constrained plate reconstruction for these margins is proposed. This reconstruction places the Coorong...[Show more]
