Dataset: The stratigraphy of the Tertiary marine rocks in Gippsland, Victoria


This Bulletin presents the results of detailed studies of the Tertiary marine sequence in Gippsland, Victoria. Most of the information used in it has been obtained as a result of scout drilling jointly by the Victorian and Commonwealth Governments and of wildcat drilling by private companies. Though primarily a detailed study of a local problem, the results cannot frail to have an important bearing on the stratigraphy of the Tertiary rocks in the Australasian region and this in turn will facilitate the study of problems involving palaeogeography and correlation with extra Australian areas. The results will also have an important bearing on a major economic problem the search for oil in Australia.
