1. 2015 edition of the Major Crustal Boundaries of Australia GIS dataset released

The second edition of the GIS dataset Major Crustal Boundaries of Australia by Korsch and Doublier (2015) has been released, and can be downloaded. The dataset is based on interpretation of the numerous deep seismic reflection profiles that transect the continent together with geological and geophysical data. It shows the locations of inferred ancient plate boundaries, and will provide constraints on the three dimensional architecture of Australia. It is a helpful map for first-order area selection in mineral exploration.
