This project and its extension documented the nature, timing and distribution of Neogene deformation along the North West Shelf and attempted to relate them to basement architecture. From its numerous findings, a tectonic model is developed of the Australian plate behaving as an articulated body in the region of NW Cape, with the Pilbara and Kimberley blocks moving independently.
