Description

Abstract: The Geophysical Airborne Survey Index presents a summary of the essential specifications on over 800 airborne surveys held in the National Airborne Geophysical Database. Airborne magnetic and radiometric surveys have been flown by AGSO-Geoscience Australia since 1951 and continue today. Incorporated into the dataset are the details of surveys flown by the various State and Territory Geological Surveys as well as public domain company data. The digital and map data are available at a reduced cost of acquisition as an exploration tool to mineral and petroleum companies.
