Summary

This coverage includes arcs, polygons and polygon labels that describe U.S. Geological Survey defined geologic provinces of the Australia and New Zealand area (Australia, Fiji, New Zealand, Tonga and Vanuatu; and parts of Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Solomon Islands). Each province has a set of geologic characteristics distinguishing it from surrounding provinces. These characteristics may include the dominant lithologies, the age of the strata, and the structural style. Some provinces include multiple genetically-related basins. Offshore province boundaries are defined by the 2000 meter bathymetric contour.

Purpose

To delineate geologic province boundaries in Open File Report 97-470F Maps Showing Geology, Geologic Provinces, and Oil and Gas Fields of the Asia Pacific Region; Plate 3: Australia and New Zealand, which is being compiled as a small scale geologic reference for the U.S. Geological Survey's World Energy Project assessment of undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources of the world. This coverage is used to produce a map and an Adobe Acrobat Portable Document of the map, published on CD-ROM. An Arcview shapefile derived from this coverage is used in an Arcview project and an ArcExplorer project.
