Brief description

This dataset shows the age uncertainty of the age grid for the Australian region. The age uncertainty grid is created by calculating the distance between magnetic anomaly identifications and the corresponding seafloor spreading isochron and also by reconstructing the magnetic anomaly identifications to their conjugate ridge flanks for constraining the uncertainty in isochron locations and geometries.

Lineage

Grey areas indicate regions that are floored by continental or transitional crust or areas where the age or nature of the crust is unknown.

Resolution = 6 minute x 6 minute
Magnetometer data collected from ship track data is interpolated to densely spaced grids using a computer program Intertec developed at the University of Sydney.
