Public Talks Archive
A selection of the following public talks have been filmed and are available online for on demand viewing after the presentation.
The use of digital regolith mapping techniques has been pioneered at Geoscience Australia by Dr John Wilford. This approach extends traditional regolith and surface mapping techniques to quantitative modelling and prediction of physical and chemical characteristics of the cover from local to national scales.
Earthquakes - the Australian experience
14 October 2015
This talk will outline Geoscience Australia's role in providing a 24/7 earthquake monitoring and alerting service in our region, and as part of the Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Centre.
UNCOVER: unlocking Australia's mineral potential
07 October 2015
The recently released AMIRA Roadmap for Exploration Under Cover, outlines a new long-term research and development strategy for the minerals industry and for collection of new pre-competitive geoscience data needed to help locate new mineral deposits.
Rescheduled: Rapid advances in the scale of earth observation analysis have been enabled in the last three years due to new technology, including the Australian Geoscience Data Cube. Custom statistical analysis of large areas over long time periods are now rapidly calculated and used to inform monitoring and reporting across multiple jurisdictional levels.
Imaging land subsidence from space: satellite radar monitoring of the Surat Basin Queensland
23 September 2015
Mapping of subsidence in Australia is being increasingly useful as energy related land uses impact society and the environment. Over the past four years, Geoscience Australia contributed to development of the AuScope funded Australian Geophysical Observing System, to develop a significant new capability to measure land subsidence from space using the Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) technique.
ICT Information Forum
16 September 2015
The latest ICT Information Forum hosted by Geoscience Australia's Chief Information Officer, Antony Stinziani, will include updates on current ICT initiatives and activities taking place across Geoscience Australia.
Long-term patterns in large earthquake occurrence, both temporal and spatial, can be deduced from the Australian landscape record and can be used to inform contemporary earthquake hazard science. Recurrent large earthquakes also have the potential to effect dramatic landscape change, which has potential implications for groundwater systems and in some cases mineral exploration and production.
02 September 2015
Geoscience Australia is holding a free Minerals Open Afternoon in the Sir Harold Raggatt Theatre on Wednesday 2 September from 1.00pm to 5.00pm. Please join us to hear about our exciting new products and Geoscience Australia's UNCOVER projects being conducted across Australia.
The development of a terrorism loss estimation capability for the Australian Government
26 August 2015
Following the terrorist attacks in the US in 2001 there was a global withdrawal of terrorism insurance. The Australian Government responded by establishing the Australian Reinsurance Pool Corporation (ARPC) through the Terrorism Insurance Act 2003. Subsequently, a range of Australian Government initiatives and collaborations have led to development of a terrorism loss estimation capability at Geoscience Australia.
Extreme weather events highlight the impact that severe wind can have on Australian communities. Wind can cause direct damage to homes and business premises, utility disruption and socio-economic activity impact. What can be expected for different forecast wind speeds? What are some of the factors influencing the severity of damage?
