1. Extended abstracts from the ASEG-PESA Airborne Gravity 2010 workshop

The Airborne Gravity 2010 workshop was held on the 22 August 2010 as part of the recent 2010 ASEG-PESA 21st International Geophysical Conference and Exhibition in Sydney, Australia. The objective of this workshop was to provide a review of the advances in airborne gravity since the Airborne Gravity 2004 Workshop. A joint publication by Geoscience Australia and the Geological Survey of New South Wales, the Airborne Gravity 2010 Abstracts from the ASEG-PESA Airborne Gravity 2010 Workshop is now available. Described by one workshop participant as "the benchmark in airborne gravity (and gradiometry)", the proceedings are a comprehensive collection of reviewed papers from the event.

2. Workshop on new seismic and MT datasets in South Australia and the Northern Territory

There will be a one-day workshop on Thursday 25 November 2010 in Adelaide to present the results of new seismic reflection and magnetotelluric data collected for the L190 Gawler-Officer-Musgrave-Amadeus Deep Crustal Seismic Survey, SA and NT, 2008. This workshop will be held in conjunction with the Department of Primary Industries and Resources South Australia (PIRSA), AuScope and the Northern Territory Geological Survey (NTGS).
