Smith, E.R., 1954. Report on seismic reflection, traverse "C", Giralia Anticline, Western Australia. Record  1954/067. Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, Canberra.

Abstract

A reflection traverse was shot across the centre part of the Giralia Anticline in the Carnarvon Basin of Western Australia, in an attempt to verify the unconformity between Mesozoic and Palaeozoic sediments shown by a previous traverse across the northern part of the anticline. Shallow seismic events recorded were of good quality and correlated very well with surface geology. They also indicated two faults in places where steep dips in surface beds might, by analogy with the northern end, be expected. Deep events were in general of poor quality and inconsistent. However, over approximately a mile of the traverse, they were of good quality and indicated nonconformity with the shallow events.
