Brief description

This is an agegrid showing the present day age of the oceanic lithosphere around the Australian Continent . The agegrid is created using a global set of seafloor spreading isochrons, reconstructed on the basis of approximately 40,000 marine magnetic anomaly identifications and fracture zones identified from marine gravity anomalies and a global set of finite rotations.

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.
