Diamantina Fracture Zone


Diamantina Fracture Zone marked in red

The Diamantina Fracture Zone is an area of the south-eastern Indian Ocean seafloor. It has a range of ridges and trenches.[1] It lies to the south of the mideastern Indian Ocean features of the Wharton Basin and Perth Basin, and to the south west of the Naturaliste Plateau.

Diamantina Trench Exploration


Diamantina Fracture Zone was first detected by RV Vema and RV Argo in 1960. It is named after HMAS Diamantina (K377), which did further exploration in 1961.

The Diamantina Deep is the zone's deepest location, located about 1 125 km West-South-West of Perth, Western Australia, at 35°S 104°E / 35°S 104°E / -35; 104. However, current etopo1-data[3] show a maximum depth of 7299 m at 34°50′S 102°34′E / 34.83°S 102.57°E / -34.83; 102.57. At that depth this is not the deepest point in the Indian Ocean: the CIA's Physical Map of the World lists the Java Trench as such.[4] On the western side of the Diamantina Fracture Zone at 33°30′S 101°20′E / 33.500°S 101.333°E / -33.500; 101.333 is another, larger pit, named Dordrecht Hole,[2] with a north-south extent of 50 km. Its maximum depth is 7079 m at 33°25′S 101°29′E / 33.42°S 101.48°E / -33.42; 101.48.[3] Dordrecht was the name of a vessel of the Dutch East India Company, which explored the Australian west coast in 1619 and discovered the Houtman Abrolhos.

The shallowest point in the area is the 1125 metre point in the Broken Ridge close to Ninety East Ridge.[5]
