Investigating the structural evolution of the western Woodlark Basin (SW Pacific), a transitional area from continental rifting to seafloor spreading. The margin is being analyzed by correlating well and seismic data, as well as 2-D kinematic modeling. The study is being done in order to better define the geologic features across the margin, and to model how this margin has extended and subsided.
