A selection of the following public talks have been filmed and are available online for on demand viewing after the presentation.

From Cover to Lithosphere – Magnetotellurics at Geoscience Australia

17 April 2019

The magnetotellurics (MT) method maps the electrical conductivity/resistivity structure of the Earth’s subsurface, which provides crucial information for mineral systems exploration. In Geoscience Australia, we have actively applied the method to provide multiscale world-leading datasets to improve the understanding of geology and resource potential. This will increase the explorer’s investment confidence for new mineral discoveries.

Geoscience Australia, Citizen Science and the launch of the Community of Practice

10 April 2019

Citizen Science is an emerging approach within Geoscience Australia to the capture, analysis and recovery of data. This talk will examine some uses of citizen science both in Geoscience Australia and outside, look at what makes up a citizen scientist and officially launch the Geoscience Australia Citizen Science Community of Practice.

Environmental Impacts of Marine Seismic Surveys: GA’s Role in Research, Mitigation, and Advice

03 April 2019

Marine seismic surveys help us to understand the geological structure beneath the oceans, but the noise associated with these surveys may impact  the animals living there. We’ll describe GA’s research on this controversial topic, as well as some of the challenges and learning experiences we encountered along the way.

Digital Transformation in the ACT – and what we can learn from it

20 March 2019

Ole Nielsen has just returned from two years in the ACT Government as Deputy Chief Digital Officer and Director of Data and Analytics.

This talk will paint a picture of digital innovations across a large and diverse organisation and in particular how an enterprise cloud based data analytics platform was developed in a short time using DevOps principles.

The Anthropocene: Where on Earth are we going?

27 February 2019

The Anthropocene is a proposed new geological epoch based on the human-driven trajectory of the Earth System away from the Holocene towards a yet-to-be-determined new state. The Anthropocene represents a collision of geology, Earth System science, the social sciences and the humanities as researchers explore the nature of the Anthropocene.

A Roadmap For Going Beyond Road Maps

20 February 2019

This presentation will explore Geoscience Australia’s outcomes-focussed efforts to enable nationwide digital supply chains of location information. The talk will highlight the importance of land, property and transport network information for important decision-making and the benefits to all Australians.

ITC’s role in Geoscience for sustainable development

13 February 2019

The Netherland's University of Twente’s Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) has acted as a knowledge hub since its inception in 1950. ITC has developed a broad global network of +25 000 alumni and strategic partnerships, and it wants to continue to actively pursue and elaborate international partnerships within our geo spatial knowledge domains.

SAGE - The journey to Bronze Accreditation

06 February 2019

15 institutions, including ANSTO and CSIRO were awarded Bronze Accreditation at the Inaugural Athena SWAN Awards night last December - and we were there. Find out what being Bronze Accredited means to the organisation and what GA is doing to get there.

Late Permian volcanism and the timing of end Permian Mass Extinction in Australia

12 December 2018

Uranium lead-dating of ashfall tuffs allows for high-precision correlation of units and events. For example, late-Permian volcanism in Eastern Australia is contrasted with the Siberian Traps and their relationship with the end-Permian Mass Extinction. Also, dating evidence suggests a potential 370 ka disparity between the initiation of Terrestrial and Marine Permian Mass Extinction events.

An updated National Seismic Hazard Assessment for Australia: Are we preparing for the right earthquakes?

05 December 2018

Geoscience Australia has released the new National Seismic Hazard Assessment — NSHA18. This assessment defines the level of earthquake ground shaking that has a given likelihood of being exceeded in a given time period and incorporates best practice and evidence based science. The updated assessment provides a benchmark for building and infrastructure design to ensure structures can withstand future earthquake events in Australia. It also serves as a benchmark to set insurance and re-insurance premiums across the country.
