Abstract

This index provides details of the specifications of 1085 airborne geophysical surveys conducted by or for the Australian, State and Territory governments. The data for these surveys are available to the public either through Geoscience Australia or through the relevant State and Territory Geological Surveys. They comprise more than 34 milllion line kilometres of mainly total magnetic intensity and gamma-ray spectrometric data. Land elevation data derived from GPS recordings made during airborne magnetic and gamma-ray spectrometric surveys, and electromagnetic data are also available for some areas. The index is 13th in a series of Geoscience Australia Records which contain regularly updated information as the specifications of surveys already completed are incorporated and as new surveys are added to the National Database.
