The Tectonic Framework of the Canning Basin, W.A., including 1:2 million Structural Elements Map of the Canning Basin

This report presents the 1:2 000 000 Structural Elements Map of the Canning Basin (Plate 1 by describing the various elements, their controlling faults and their affect on basin development. The map incorporates the results of AGSO's Canning Basin Project carried out between 1990 and 1994. This report also attempts to rationalise previously published structural and tectonic terminology and to clarify the definition and naming of individual tectonic elements and structures. The limits of the structural elements are not always well defined due to poor outcrop and limited seismic coverage; in Plate 1 the faults are positioned where they are estimated to intersect the surface. In order to provide a 3D-picture of the basin, and present preliminary new interpretations of deep-seismic sections BMR. 88-01 and BMR 88-03, (Plates 2 and 3).
