Abstract

As part of the National Environmental Geoscience Mapping Accord the Australian Geological Survey Organisation flew an airborne geophysical survey of 43 200 line km over an irregularly shaped area to the west of Tamworth, NSW from 13 February to 27 March 1995. The flight line direction was east-west and the line spacing was 200 m. Flying height was at an altitude of 80m above ground level. This survey was specifically designed to help assess the extent of soil salinity, rising water tables and land degradation on the Liverpool Plains. The new datasets will provide the framework for future landuse and exploration and assist in developing strategies for environmental management and resource development. The total magnetic intensity, gamma-ray spectrometric and digital elevation model data which were collected during the survey, have been processed and are available for purchase, in both digital (point located data and gridded) and map form, from the Australian Geological Survey Organisation. Colour and greyscale pixel image maps are also available.
