Abstract

Prominent middle Quaternary to modem isolated carbonate buildups (!CBs) occur in abundance on the North West Shelf of Australia, yet studies on their sedimentary processes and morphology are limited. This study integrates 2D and 3D seismic, multibeam bathymetry, satellite-derived (low resolution) bathymetry, and previously studied gravity cores over an 800 km length of continental shelf in the Browse and Bonaparte Basins, NW Shelf of Australia, examining 180 ICBs. Overall morphologies were found to have adependency on spatial parameters and exposure to the Indonesian Throughflow. Base of slope deposits were dominated by MTDs, turbidites and contourites.
