Build the confidence to step outside your comfort zone, a Science in Australia Gender Equity SAGE@GA talk.

14 February 2018

Challenge the notion that all you need is confidence to succeed, and find out a bit about the SAGE (Science in Australia Gender Equity) program at Geoscience Australia.

Intro to Chaos Engineering

06 February 2018

Chaos engineering is a new approach to testing that involves intentionally injecting failures into live systems. Netflix were the pioneers in this space; you might have heard of their Chaos Monkey system.

Geospatial data supporting marine policy and decision-making - an example from the Arctic Ocean

14 December 2017

Geospatial data underpin many ocean policies and are critical for policy implementation and decision-making in the global arena. GRID-Arendal provides support to these initiatives through the provision of data synthesis and communication products to make complex geoscience information accessible to policy and decision-makers.

Interdisciplinary studies of large palaeotsunami on the southern coast of Java

13 December 2017

This presentation will present geological evidence of tsunami inundation from the south coast of Java, Indonesia. Tsunamis generated from earthquakes on the Java Subduction Zone have the potential to significantly impact both Indonesia and Western Australia. GA is collaborating with the Indonesian Institute of Sciences to better understand the palaeo-history of tsunami identified in deposits in Java.

The 2011 NE Japan Tsunami: How it Changed Tsunami Science

06 December 2017

The 2011 NE Japan earthquake and tsunami was a huge tragedy for Japan and the world, but was also unprecedented in the coverage and quality of data for a major tsunami event. In this talk I will show how this data coverage changed tsunami science and the use of tsunami data. 

Introduction to a new open source R package - "spm: Spatial Predictive Modelling", using novel, accurate, hybrid geostatistical and machine learning methods

29 November 2017

This presentation is about a new package, "spm: Spatial Predictive Modelling", on CRAN for R users. It will introduce the developmental history of novel hybrid geostatistical and machine learning methods in spm, and the applications of spm to relevant datasets.

The Northern Houtman Sub-basin: geology and hydrocarbon prospectivity

22 November 2017

The Northern Houtman Sub-basin Project acquired a regional 2D seismic survey in 2014-15. Subsequently these data have been interpreted and used to increase understanding of the geological evolution and hydrocarbon prospectivity of this frontier area.

Science 101: Introduction to High Performance Computing

15 November 2017

'High Performance Computing for Geoscience Australia Staff', is the latest installment in a Science 101 seminar series, will include an introduction to Geoscience Australia's High Performance Computing (HPC) activities, including an overview of work using the National Computational Infrastructure facility.

A new probabilistic tsunami hazard assessment for Australia

08 November 2017

Geoscience Australia is currently updating the Australian probabilistic tsunami hazard assessment, a nationally consistent suite of earthquake-tsunami scenarios and return-periods, which provide fundamental information for detailed tsunami inundation hazard studies in Australia. I will discuss developments in tsunami modelling, testing and uncertainty quantification which underlie the new study.

The 26th May 2016 Mw6.0 Petermann Ranges earthquake: another large earthquake in an unanticipated location

01 November 2017

In the early morning hours of the 26th of May 2016 the central Australian desert 150 km SW of Uluru was rocked by a magnitude Mw 6.1 earthquake. This remote earthquake caused no damage or injury, but challenges our understanding of how active faults behave in continental interiors.
