Description

Abstract:

The Commonwealth of Australia, through Geoscience Australia (GA), funded an airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey to be flown over the Paterson region of Western Australia. The survey was flown using the TEMPEST AEM system during 2007 and 2008. The data acquisition and data processing and reductions were carried out by Fugro Airborne Surveys (FAS) under contract to GA. The 2010 data release includes the entire Paterson Survey area. This data set includes the eight blocks of infill flying that were completed with funding provided by private companies.

Data quality

Lineage:

The AEM survey data were acquired and processed by the airborne geophysical survey contractors Fugro Airborne Surveys. Details on the acquisition and processing are available in Lawrence and Stenning (2008 and 2009), which is included in the dataset.

References:

Lawrence, M., Stenning, L., 2009. Paterson North airborne electromagnetic mapping survey acquisition and processing report. Unpublished Fugro Airborne Surveys report to Geoscience Australia.

Positional accuracy:

Positioning was via post-processed differential GPS methods. Horizontal positional accuracy of the data is approximately 1 metre (standard deviation).

Attribute accuracy:

The data have been acquired and processed to a standard of best practice as of the year 2008. More sophisticated processing algorithms may be applied to these data should they become available.

Logical Consistency:

Not applicable.

Completeness:

The dataset includes all final data and products created by the survey contractor Fugro Airborne Surveys.
