Characteristics of Block Slope in the Burrup Peninsula Landscape

Block slope, with a height of approximately 30 m, is composed of reddish-brown boulders of Archean granophyre. It is located at 20.6° south latitude, Dampier, Western Australia (Burrup Peninsula, Pilbara region). According to Karratha meteorological station, located 8 km away, the maximum temperature is 48.2℃ and the annual rainfall is 297 mm. The Pilbara region is within Australia’s arid zone. The boulders are angular and a large example has a long axis of about 2 m, which would have been produced along joints. The color of the boulders is due to a varnish coating. Local Aboriginal people engraved human and animal figures and geometric designs on the varnish coating. Because it contains one of the densest concentrations of rock engravings in Australia, the area including archaeological sites is protected as the Murujuga National Park.
