Abstract

The geological background of the Taranaki Basin has been summarized from King and Thrasher (1996) at the Geological and Nuclear Sciences Institute, New Zealand. The basin occupies an area of 100,000 km2 (38,610 mi2) and is located on the west coast of the North Island of New Zealand (Figure 25). The basin has mostly evolved as a marine basin with an extensive erosional contact surface that formed in the Early to Middle Cretaceous, with the oldest basinal strata being deposited in the Middle Cretaceous.
