Abstract

The Sedimentary basins of eastern Australia project undertook structural and sequence stratigraphic mapping of a regional grid of seismic reflection data in the Bowen, Gunnedah and Surat Basins (usually 4 seconds two-way travel time data, with about 15,000 line km of data on about 1200 individual seismic lines). The seismic mapping was used to define the interplate and intraplate tectonic events that have helped to create the accommodation space and also to define the stratal geometry of the sedimentary units. Thus, the mapping provided the overall geometry of the basin system as well as the geometry of several of the sequence boundaries, resulting in the development of a new sequence stratigraphic framework for the basins. These results were also compiled into a series of structure contour and isopach maps, which have been used to build a 3D geological map of the Bowen Gunnedah and Surat Basins.
