Abstract

Two radial traverses each about 16 miles along were surveyed through Gosses Bluff area of the Amadeus Basin, NT, using variously single coverage and 3-, 6- and 12- fold multiple coverage. This survey was part of a combined geological and geophysical investigation of the feature being undertaken jointly by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) and Bureau of Mineral Resources (BMR). The USGS, which undertakes astrogeological studies for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), is studying the Gosses Bluff structure, and other similar structures throughout the world, mainly in order to contribute to a greater understanding of similar features on the surface of the Moon. The seismic survey was intended to define the various structural features of the Bluff more precisely than has been possible from previous investigation.

Lineage

The Amadeus and Yuendumu regional gravity depressions apparently associated with the Amadeus and Ngalia Basins respectively are both considerably displaced to the north of their geologically known basins. Known near-surface structure within and around the basins is not sufficient to explain these gravity anomalies. An explanation may be found in deep structure within the crust and possibly the upper mantle. The present deep crustal reflection work was carried out by BMR Seismic Party No. 1 during the Gosses Bluff Seismic Survey, 1969, in the Amadeus Basin and the Ngalia Basin Seismic Survey, 1969. The seismic programme was planned to determine if crustal reflections could be recorded in these two areas.
