Abstract

Processed Stacked and Migrated SEG-Y seismic data and uninterpreted and interpreted section images for the Capricorn Deep Crustal Seismic Survey. This survey was a collaborative ANSIR project between AuScope, the Geological Survey of Western Australia and Geoscience Australia. Funding was through AuScope and the Western Australian Government royalites for Regions Exploration Incentive Scheme. The objectives of the survey were use deep seismic profiling to 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.

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.
