Summary:Eyre peninsula forms the SE part of the Galer block belonging to the shield areas of the Australian plate. In the gravity anomaly map of the peninsula, the Carpentarian group of Proterozoic age is characterized chiefly by a NE-SW trending gravity high of approx 10-20 mGals relative to the surroundings. The W half of the peninsula, mostly covered under a thin Tertiary/Quaternary layer, does not show many gravity variations. [J.M.H.]
