Abstract

The Australian Government, through Geoscience Australia, 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 Geoscience Australia. 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. The Paterson Survey area is shown on the locality map below (Figure 1). The digital dataset has been arranged into two separate directories or folders according to the two main survey areas Paterson North and Paterson South. Four sub-directories are arranged according to the four main data types which are: (i) Survey operations and processing report, (ii) Point located electromagnetic response and derived EM Flow CDI line data, (iii) Gridded electromagnetic response and CDI data, and (iv) Graphic profile based multiplots showing electromagnetic, CDI and ancillary data.

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.
