Abstract

This 4th version of the Tanami 3D model covers a 200 km x 200 km area of the Tanami Region and Arunta Inlier (Aileron Province). This model consists of a series of 3D surfaces of major geological elements ranging from relatively shallow cover sequences, down to the Moho. The 3D surfaces were constructed using 3D GeoModeller and combines the interpreted seismic data from the 2005 Tanami Seismic Collaborative Research Project, with geological mapping, interpreted solid geology maps, and gravity and magnetic data. Elements of the model have been tested by gravity forward modelling. Geographic extent Tanami Region, Northern Territory-Western Australia. Contents Digital elevation model; images of magnetics, gravity, radiometrics, satellite imagery, mapped geology and regolith; roads; images of solid geology interpretation maps; modelled cross-sections; 3D fault surfaces; gravity and magnetic inversion surfaces; gravity and magnetics strings; mineral occurrences; SHRIMP geochronology; seismic images; and depth to basement points, surfaces and contours. Software required Geoscience Australia's X3D and older VRML models require the free plugin BS Contact and work best with the web browser Internet Explorer version 6 or higher. Size Approximately 27MB Startup download is 850KB - the remaining datasets download when selected.
