Subsidence history, gravity anomalies, and flexure of the northeast Australian margin in Papua New Guinea

Abstract:

Gravity and well data have been used to model the foreland basin flanking the Papua New Guinea orogenic belt. Backstripping of sediments from well data reveals a former passive margin that has probably experienced at least two major orogenic loading events. The first of these took place at or near the Miocene-Oligocene boundary and was associated with widespread carbonate deposition across the existing shelf and evolving basin. The second event is most likely related to the start of the main ...
