Abstract

The Permian in the intracratonic basins consists of basal glacial to periglacial deposits overlain by marine and finally freshwater deposits. Basin shape was controlled mainly by NW and NE-trending structures that first appeared in the late Carboniferous or early Permian and were intermittently active until the end of the Permian. The structures resulted from compression generated mainly by plate convergence on the eastern craton margin (Tasman Fold Belt) and to a lesser extent by taphrogenesis on the western side of Australia.
