AusGeo News: the rates of wrath
19 October 2004
The September issue of AusGeo News is now available. This edition reports on Australia's preparation for dealing with the effects of natural hazards and includes discussion on the Australian Government's Disaster Mitigation Package. News about Geoscience Australia's work in risk modelling and the development of monitoring networks are also included.
Other articles include oil seep detection in the Yampi Shelf area off north-western Australia and early results from a 32-day survey of the relatively unexplored Bremer and Denmark sub-basins off south-western Australia. The dramatic movement of sand waves in the Torres Strait is also a fascinating read.
Amongst the product news, you'll find information about the upgraded Earthquake database, the new shore safety brochure, the digital NW Queensland surface geology map and six other new or updated products.
