Stratigraphic columns and correlations for the Late Eocene - Oligocene Te Kuiti Group, central-western North Island, New Zealand

Abstract
This report presents a compilation of stratigraphic columns for geological sections and outcrops of Late Eocene – Oligocene Te Kuiti Group units in central-western parts of North Island, New Zealand, between Port Waikato and Awakino. The columns have been prepared as part of a basin analysis investigation undertaken by the Sedimentary and Petroleum Geology Research Group in the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences at the University of Waikato, and have been compiled into a common format from recent MSc and PhD theses to make the information more readily available, principally to assist hydrocarbon exploration activities in the region. The columns represent a level of detail underpinning a rationalized lithostratigraphy of the Te Kuiti Group presented in a companion report (Tripathi et al. 2008). This report contains two enclosures, one show in the location of columns in relation to the distribution of the two subgroups (Okoko Subgroup, Castle Craig Subgroup) of the Te Kuiti Group, and the other shows a series of north-south and west-east column correlation panels.
