Southwest Margin Marine Survey Movie

Between October 2008 and February 2009, Geoscience Australia undertook two major marine surveys off south Western Australia to investigate the resource potential of deep-water frontier areas on the southwest margin. The surveys were undertaken as part of the Southwest Frontiers Project in the Offshore Energy Security Program.

The Minister for Energy and Resources, the Hon Martin Ferguson AM MP, released the initial results in Perth on 14 April 2010. As part of the data release Geoscience Australia produced a video showing the work undertaken during the surveys, why they took place and some of the results.
