Description

Abstract:

This survey was a collbarative project between AuScope, the Geological Survey of Western Australia and Geoscience Australia. Funding was through AuScope and the Western Australian Government Royalties for Regions, Exploration Incentive Scheme.

These deep seismic profiles improve the understanding of the Western Australian continent by imaging the subsurface extent of Archean crust beneath the Capricorn Orogen and determining whether the Pilbara and Yilgarn Cratons are in direct contact or separated by one of more elements of Proterozoic crust.

Data quality

Lineage:

Terrex Seismic was contracted to undertake the data acquisition.

Seismic Reflection data was acquired using 3 x Hemi 60 Vibroseis trucks and a SERCEL 428X L 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:

Dynamic Satellite services were contracted to do the traverse line surveying.

Calculated location from GPS measurements acurate to less than 25 metres

Attribute accuracy:

Standard SEG-Y data
