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 K–Th–U pattern. The structure has been studied in the context of an investigation of the nature and origin of Australian circular structures. Geophysical signatures, including total magnetic intensity (TMI), gravity and seismic reflection transect data from the region of the ring feature are examined to… 

The transition from the Thomson Orogen to the North Australian Craton from seismic data

Abstract The transition between the North Australian Craton and the Thomson Orogen in the area south of the Mount Isa terrane lies under cover and is a critical element in interpretation of the

Ring and Dome Features, Possible and Probable Impact Structures

Circular drainage patterns, round lakes and oval depressions may provide hints of possible underlying ring or dome structures, requiring field tests or drilling where no outcrop occurs (Grieve RAF,

Remote sensing (RS) can certainly provide deep insights about detecting the terrestrial structure of unknown origin. In this paper, we also detected impact crater of unknown origin in northeast



Gnargoo: a possible 75 km-diameter post-Early Permian – pre-Cretaceous buried impact structure, Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia

The Gnargoo structure is located on the Gascoyne Platform, Southern Carnarvon Basin, Western Australia, and is buried beneath about 500 m of Cretaceous and younger strata. The structure is

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

Shoemaker impact structure, Western Australia

The Shoemaker impact structure, on the southern margin of the Palaeoproterozoic Earaheedy Basin, with an outer diameter of ∼⃒30 km, consists of two well‐defined concentric ring structures surrounding

Crustal architecture and geodynamics of North Queensland, Australia: insights from deep seismic reflection profiling

A deep crustal seismic reflection and magnetotelluric survey, conducted in 2007, established the architecture and geodynamic framework of north Queensland, Australia. Results based on the

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

Abstract The Tasmanides of eastern Australia record the break-up of Rodinia, followed by the growth of orogenic belts along the eastern margin of Gondwana. Spatially, the Tasmanides comprise five
