Formatted abstract
The article discusses the occurrence of Cenozoic volcanism, tectonism and stream derangement in the Snowy Mountains and northern Monaro of New South Wales. The article states that the uplift in the Tumut and Tumbarumba catchments had been largely completed prior to the outpouring of basalt in Early Miocene times. The authors attribute the general northerly fall in the elevation of the Early Miocene surface on the plateau in the Tumut catchment to a northerly, post-basaltic tilting. The southernmost remnant of the Tumbarumba basalt lies at an elevation of only -400 metre, which is 1200 metre below the elevation of basalt in the upper part of the Tumut catchment on the plateau to the east.
