TIMOR SEA CONTINENTAL SHELF SEDIMENTS MAP SCALE H. A. Jones and W. Burgis Since the publication in of the monograph on the marine geology of the Timor Sea,1 the Bureau of Mineral Resources has initiated a program of systematic reconnaissance geological surveys of the continental shelf. The results of this work.

      But there is no underlining or highlighting on the pages. There is a name written on the flyleaf. This book covers the broad spectrum of marine geology in a largely non-quantitative way: the rocks, sediments, geophysics, structure, microfossils, and stratigraphy and history of the ocean basins and their margins. Offshore Northwest Australia The offshore North and Northwest Region of Australia is a world class gas province with significant oily sweet spots. The region includes the offshore and marginal basins of the Arafura Sea (Carpentaria, Arafura and Money Shoals basins) and the North West Shelf (Bonaparte, Browse, Offshore Canning, Roebuck and.

In , three new offshore fields on the Australian continental shelf began production (World Oil, ). PROVINCE GEOLOGYFile Size: 1MB. Reflecting these seasonally contrasting processes, the terrigenous sediment fraction that ends up on the northwestern Western Australian continental shelf and slope is a mixture of airborne dust emitted during the dry season and river‐transported mud during the rainy season and in particular during monsoonal activity, some of which caused by Cited by: 1.

Even in early phases of cultural development human populations were faced with marine regression and transgression as a result of changing climate and corresponding glacio-isostatic adjustment.

Global marine regression during the last glaciation changed the palaeogeography of the continental shelf, converting former marine environments to. The shelf has a block-faulted basement substructure of Precambrian rocks, related in part to the extension of major structure in Precambrian rocks of the northwest Australian mainland.

The geological superstructure of the shelf consists of Phanerozoic rocks whose essential structural framework is related to rejuvenated Precambrian by: 3.

The Australian Government’s Australian Energy Resource Assessment released in states that the CLCS ‘confirmed the location of Australia’s continental outer shelf in nine distinct marine regions’ which includes ‘exclusive rights to what exists on and beneath the seabed, including oil, gas and biological resources’.

CiteScore values are based on citation counts in a given year (e.g. ) to documents published in three previous calendar years (e.g. – 14), divided by the number of documents in these three previous years (e.g. – 14). We encourage papers that address emerging new fields, for example the influence of anthropogenic processes on coastal/marine geology and coastal/marine geoarchaeology.

We insist that the papers are concerned with the marine realm and that they deal with geology: with rocks, sediments, and physical and chemical processes affecting them.
