New insights into the 3D structure, composition and origin of the Mt Ashmore dome, west Bonaparte Basin, Timor Sea, are enabled by reprocessed seismic-reflection data and by optical microscopic, X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM)/energy dispersive spectrometry (EDS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM) analyses of drill cuttings. The structural dome, located below a major pre-Oligocene post-Late Eocene unconformity and above a ∼6 km-deep-seated basement high… 

Talundilly, Western Queensland, Australia: geophysical and petrological evidence for an 84 km-large impact structure and an Early Cretaceous impact cluster

The Talundilly Structure, southwestern Queensland, Australia, is represented on 2D seismic reflection transects as a major seismic anomaly disrupting the consistent ‘C’ seismic–stratigraphic horizon

Australian Impact Structures >10 Km-Large

The geological antiquity of Australian land surfaces and the sedimentary and volcanic cover of Precambrian cratons in the central and western parts of the continent, allow preservation of a range of

The World’s Largest Late to Post-Archaean Asteroid Impact Structures

As distinct from small to medium-size impact events, large asteroid impacts producing explosions more powerful than 107 TNT-equivalent, represented by craters and rebound domes larger than about 100

The Diamantina River ring feature, Winton region, western Queensland

ABSTRACT The Diamantina ∼120 km-diameter ring feature, a unique feature in western Queensland, is manifested by a near-360° circular drainage pattern, radial creeks and a coincident radiometric



Tookoonooka, a large buried early Cretaceous impact structure in the Eromanga Basin of southwestern Queensland, Australia

Th Thin sections from a centrally located exploration well reveal an impact melt breccia, composed of local Ordovician quartz-mica schist bedrock, which confirms an impact origin for Tookoonooka.

Microchemistry and microstructures of hydrothermally altered shock-metamorphosed basement gneiss, Woodleigh impact structure, Southern Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia

Hydrothermally altered shock-metamorphosed gneisses consisting of relic igneous biotite – K-feldspar – Na-rich alkali feldspar – plagioclase – quartz assemblages (± accessory garnet, corundum,

Yallalie: a buried structure of possible impact origin in the Perth Basin, Western Australia

An enigmatic buried structure, located in Mesozoic sedimentary rocks in the Perth Basin, Western Australia, was discovered in 1990 by Ampol Exploration. The basin-like Yallalie structure (centred on

Salt migration and subtle structures: modelling of the Petrel Sub-basin, northwest Australia

Salt diapirs have been well documented in the Petrel Sub-basin of the Bonaparte Basin, offshore northwestern Australia, indicating that mobile salt exists at depth. G raphi- cal manipulation of

Origin of a unique impact‐melt rock—the L‐chondrite Ramsdorf

Abstract— We have studied a unique impact‐melt rock, the Ramsdorf L chondrite, using optical and scanning microscopy and electron microprobe analysis. Ramsdorf contains not only clast‐poor impact

Woodleigh, Southern Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia: history of discovery, Late Devonian age, and geophysical and morphometric evidence for a 120 km-diameter impact structure

The discovery of the Woodleigh impact structure, first identified by R. P. Iasky, bears a number of parallels with that of the Chicxulub impact structure of K – T boundary age, underpinning

A Comparative Structural and Petrographic Study of Probable Canadian Meteorite Craters

The characteristics investigated to date of ten circular structures in the Canadian Shield have supported their origin by meteoritic impact. Seven, ranging in diameter from 3 to 20 km, have a
