Abstract: The Chatham Rise is a submarine plateau that extends due east of the South Island for over 1100 km. The region described in this bulletin includes the submerged portions of the rise shallower than 1500 m and its land areas between 175 deg. W and the Southern Alps. The database is composed mainly of marine seismic reflection profiles and stratigraphic information derived from outcrops and drillholes, supplemented by a variety of geophysical and geological studies. The structural and sedimentary evolution of the region is summarised in a series of iospach and structural maps at a scale of 1:1 000 000 and in paleographic maps where the data are sufficient.
