Data quality


Terrex Seismic was contracted to undertake the data acquisition.

Seismic Reflection data was acquired using 3 x Hemi 60 Vibroseis trucks and a SERCEL SN388 acquisition equipment.

Parameters used included 3 x 60,000 lb source, vibe interval 80m, 3 x 12 second sweeps (6-64Hz, 12-96 Hz & 8-72Hz),

40m geophone group interval, split spread 6000m-0-6000m (300 channel). Correlated record length 20 sec.

Geoscience Australia processed the data using Disco Focus Software. Metadata with details of processing is included in the data download files.

Positional accuracy:

Calculated location from GPS measurements acurate to less than 25 metres

Attribute accuracy:

Standard Seg Y Data
