Abstract

Christopher Todd investigated the geology of Permian to Cretaceous rocks of the Galilee and Eromanga basins in Queensland. He provides constraints on stratigraphy, depositional environments, and ages of the strata, paying close attention to the poorly-studied Jurassic. Results help to characterise the economic hydrocarbon and groundwater systems within these basins.
