Christopher Yule conducted 3D seismic stratigraphic mapping of the Canning Basin. He found key units offshore for the first time, devised a simple strategy for improved seismic data acquisition and classified a new magmatic province. His results enhance the Canning Basin's geological history and will assist future exploration and research.
