Description

Abstract:

Geoscience Australia (GA) contracted an airborne electromagnetic (AEM) survey over the Frome Embayment, South Australia, under the Australian Government's Onshore Energy Security Program. The Frome AEM survey was acquired using the Fugro Airborne Surveys (FAS) TEMPEST fixed wing time-domain electromagnetic (TEM) AEM system. The acquisition and processing of data were carried out by FAS under contract to GA. The Frome AEM survey consists of 32,300 line km, covering a total area of 95,000 km2 and was flown between 19 May and 2 November 2010.

The survey was designed to deliver reliable, pre-competitive AEM data and scientific analysis of the energy resource potential of the Frome region of South Australia, including the flanks of the Northern Flinders Ranges, the Frome Embayment, the Olary Ranges and the northwestern Murray Basin. The survey data may also be used as an input to groundwater studies in the region.

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 Bergeron and Lawrence (2010), which is included in the dataset.

References:

Bergeron, M-C. and Lawrence, M. 2010. Frome airborne electromagnetic (AEM) 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 Unpublished Fugro Airborne Surveys report to Geoscience Australia.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 2010. 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.
