Title: Frome airborne electromagnetic survey interpreted palaeovalley GIS package


Custodian: Geoscience Australia

Jurisdiction: Australia



This GIS package contains interpreted boundaries and thalwegs (valley bottoms) of Cenozoic palaeovalley systems derived from the Frome AEM Survey dataset. Palaeovalley boundaries are by Adrian Fabris, DMITRE, and include interpreted Eyre Formation sediments only. Palaeovalley thalwegs are by Ian Roach, GA, and include interpreted Eyre Formation and Namba Formation sediments. This dataset supports the Frome AEM Survey interpretation record, GA Record 2012/40-Geological Survey of South Australia Report Book 2012/00003.
