Cenozoic landscape development in the Blue Mountains (SE Australia): L=lithological and tectonic controls on rifted margin morphology
Cenozoic landscape development on the southeastern Australian rifted margin, as recorded by mid‐Tertiary basalt flows that preserve ancient landforms, is generally considered to be very slow. Eocene‐Miocene basalts of the southeastern Australian highlands flowed down paleovalleys, indicating that landscape dissection was already well under way at the time of their eruption. Within the deeply incised Blue Mountains, however, Miocene basalts cap relatively flat hilltops, suggesting that most...[Show more]
