Investigation of Crustal and Larger Scales in the Kimberley – The KIMBA Project

In 1997 and 1998 a set of broad-band instruments were deployed in the Kimberley region to perform geophysical investigation on crustal and larger scales. The object of the study was to try to characterise the Kimberly region where very little geophysical investigation had been carried out on crustal and larger scales. The stations were placed to build on information obtained from the stations in the SK3 and SK6 legs of the SKIPPY experiment to improve knowledge of the region.
