Dataset History

Data used to construct this interpretation was sourced from publicly available geophysics (largely seismic), groundwater bore hole logs and open file mineral/petroleum exploration drilling logs. The first published instance of this interpretation is Wohling D, Keppel M, Fulton S, Costar A, Sampson L and Berens V 2013b.
