Abstract: This map, first published by BMR in 1983, displays the distribution of metamorphic facies in Australia. The original map was compiled between 1972 and 1983 by T.G. Vallance, G.W. DAddario, A.J. Stewart, J.E. Mitchell, J.F. Stirzaker, and A.S.Mikolajczak using data supplied by BMR, State and Territory Geological Surveys,Universities and the Geological Society of Australia. As a digital data set the attributes have been revised to allow relational analysis of the data within. Included is a GIF image file of the metamorphic grades legend for the dataset.
