    Maps were prepared using high resolution (50 cm per pixel) Shark Bay orthophotographs from the Department of Environment and Conservation (DEC) and from Landgate (Perth, WA, Australia). In addition, a set of Shark Bay aerial‐photographs (1: ) from Landgate was interpreted using stereoscopy equipment to support map construction. Shark Bay & Lake MacLeod. Shark Bay Stromatolites.

    Lake Macleod is a lake that as a result of evaporation of influxing of sea water through the Pleistocene country rock lies below sea level. It periodically is flooded by freshwater from monsoonal rains. It is situated just north of Shark Bay and Carnarvon, Western Australia. PDF | On Jan 1, , C.B.

Mai n geographic n ames are also s hown. Unusual occurrences of large blocks on top of cliffs overlooking the sea have been interpreted as debris scattered by the force of so-called mega-tsunamis that struck the Western Australian coast up to years ago.

Several of these deposits have been discovered at Shark Bay, Barrow Island, Legendre Island and along the Kimberley coast. coastal playas of Lake Macleod and Shark Bay.

Freycinet embayment in the western Shark Bay maintains the best connection with northerly oceanic waters so that despite the high evaporation, salinity is metahaline (40–56; Logan and Cebulski, ).

The geology of Western Australia spans billion years of Earth's history — from the oldest dated zircon mineral grains at Jack Hills and ancient million-year-old Archean gneiss in the Narryer Terrane, to recent sediments forming right now on the Swan Coastal Plain around Perth.

The Carnarvon Basin study area covers 75 km2 on Australia's western coast. It is centred on Shark Bay, and extends northwards from the Murchison River to the Minilya River, and eastwards to °30'E (beyond Gascoyne Junction) (Figure 1).

Coastal deposits along the western coastal margin of Australia, a region of relative tectonic stability, record Plio-Pleistocene events and processes affecting the inner shelf and adjacent hinterland. Tectonic deformation of these deposits is more apparent in the Carnarvon Basin, and rather less so in the Perth Basin.
