Abstract

The Australian Geological Survey Organisation (AGSO) (now Geoscience Australia) conducted a deep reflection seismic profiling survey in the onshore portion of the Otway Basin in the southeastern part of South Australia and southwestern part of Victoria, form February to June 1992. The seismic survey formed part of a National Geoscience Mapping Accord (NGMA) project to study the early development of the Otway Basin. The objective of the seismic survey was to acquire a new deep reflection seismic data using explosive seismic energy sources to improve on the knowledge of early sedimentary sequences in the Otway Basin, especially at depths greater than 3 km. The seismic survey obtained 461 km of 5 to 10 fold Common-Middle-Point (CMP) deep reflection seismic data.
