Geoscience Australia maintains a database of nuclear explosions with the location, time and size of explosions around the world since 1945.
The Petroleum Information Management System (PIMS) is a search tool for discovery of survey and well data assets and physical samples held by the Geoscience Australia Repository. Data can be ordered and viewing of samples can be arranged via an online form. Although this is public data, fees are charged to cover the cost of transcription and delivery.
This application provides access to Geoscience Australia's Oracle petroleum wells databases. Data themes include header data, biostratigraphy, organic geochemistry, reservoir and facies, stratigraphy, velocity and directional surveys. Data is included for offshore and onshore regions. Scientific data entry is generally only conducted for offshore wells. Onshore data is generally acquired from state geological surveys.
