Abstract

A hybrid high-resolution seismic survey was undertaken adjacent to the Eurabba State Forest near Quandialla, Western NSW between June 29 and July 3 2003 acquiring both refraction and reflection data. The Australian National Seismic Imaging Resource (ANSIR) carried out the field work in conjunction with University of Canberra and Dryland Salinity Hazard Mitigation Program (DSHMP) research staff and students. Processing of the acquired refraction information was performed with the assistance of ANSIR staff. This survey was designed to collect and compare a shallow, high-resolution seismic dataset against nearby regional scale seismic datasets and other complementary sources of spatial information including NanoTEM, drill hole data, satellite imagery and regolith-landform mapping. The multi-disciplinary approach is designed for imaging shallow sedimentary structures and determining depth to bedrock. The combined aim of utilizing the multidisciplinary approach is to understand shallow fluid flow within the Booberoi-Quandialla Transect area and how this relates to observed outbreaks of dryland salinity. These observations will aid in the development of a shallow fluid flow model for the Bland catchment, especially over the Booberoi- Quandialla Transect area.

Lineage

Between June 29 and July 3 2003 the Australian National Seismic Imaging Resource (ANSIR) collected both high resolution refraction and reflection seismic data in the Bland catchment near Quandialla in western NSW on behalf of the Dryland Salinity Hazard Mitigation Program (DSHMP). This data set utilized a P- wave seismic source to demonstrate the successful imaging of shallow features.
