The Capel and Faust basins (northern Lord Howe Rise) are located in the SW Pacific between Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia. New seismic, gravity, magnetic and bathymetry data and rock samples have enabled the construction of a three-dimensional geological model providing insights into the crustal architecture and basin stratigraphy. Multiple large depocentres up to 150 km long and 40 km wide, containing over 6 km of sediment, have been identified. These basins probably evolved through two major Early Cretaceous rifting episodes leading to the final break-up of the eastern Gondwanan margin. Pre-break-up plate restorations and potential field data...
