The Neotectonic Featues database contains information on faults, folds and other features within Australia that are believed to relate to large earthquakes during the Neotectonic Era (i.e. the past 5-10 million years). The neotectonic feature mapping tool allows you to: * search and explore Australian neotectonic features * create a report for a feature of interest * download feature data and geometries as a csv file or kml file * advise Geoscience Australia if you have any feedback, or wish to propose a new feature.
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.
Place Name Search allows the user to search for locations of places in Australia.
Recent Earthquakes in Australia, the region and the world.
If you felt an earthquake, or know of an earthquake that occurred recently, please fill in this form. Even if you did not feel the earthquake yourself, please fill in the form, as this information will assist us.
Rock properties provide the vital link between observed geophysical data and interpreted geology. Geoscience Australia has periodically made measurements of rock properties to support various investigations into the composition and structure of the subsurface. The Rock Properties Project consolidates this information into a single database structure and makes it accessible to external clients via a web delivery application. We have chosen to initially concentrate on mass density and magnetic properties, as these are of prime importance to the important gravity and magnetic datasets maintained for the Australian region by Geoscience Australia. Additional property types and more extensive datasets will be added over time.
View information on or download scanned images of all 1:250 000 scale geology maps of Australia. Images are available in 75 DPI, 125 DPI or 250 DPI resolution JPG files. Digital delivery of published (ie, cartographically produced) geological maps. When georeferenced, these images may be used as background information in GIS applications. Scanned image (eg, JPG), postscript, or PDF format published geological maps (including regolith, surface geology and solid geology) at all scales. This data may or may not be georeferenced.
Sentinel is a national bushfire monitoring system that provides timely information about hotspots to emergency service managers across Australia. The mapping system allows users to identify fire locations with a potential risk to communities and property.
