Abstract

In preparation for a National Geoscience Mapping Accord project involving a seismic survey planned for 1993, seismic tests were conducted on the Nullarbor Plain south of Cook to investigate the feasibility of imaging the sedimentary sequences and basement beneath the platform carbonates of the Eucla Basin, and to anticipate scientific and logistic difficulties associated with seismic acquisition on the Nullarbor Plain.

Lineage

The purpose of these seismic tests is to investigate the feasibility of imaging the sedimentary sequences and basement beneath the platform carbonates of the Eucla Basin, and to anticipate scientific and logistic difficulties associated with operating on the Nullarbor. This is preliminary to a seismic program, planned in conjunction with the South Australian Department of Mines and Energy as part of the National Geoscience Mapping Accord Officer Basin Project (Lindsay, Leven & Krieg, 1991). Two sites were selected in the Mallabie Depression where aeromagnetic interpretation indicated a thickness of up to 1500 m of sediments beneath the Eucla Basin.
