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.

Cracking the Big Data code for the National Geophysical Collection

25 October 2017

With the support of the data team at the National Computational Infrastructure, Geoscience Australia has enabled the National Geophysical Collection of government funding airborne magnetics, radiometrics and ground gravity datasets in programmatically accessible high performance data formats for access via the web, through virtual laboratories and directly via computer programs.  

Australia Minerals - Increasing Australia's share of global exploration spend

18 October 2017

Australia's proportion of global exploration spend is in decline, which is a major problem as new discovery requires this investment, much of it from offshore investors. The purpose of Australia Minerals is to attend the biggest international minerals events and promote Australia as a desirable exploration and mining investment destination.

The United Kingdom's Catapult Programme - Linking Industry and Research

11 October 2017

The Catapults bridge the gap between businesses and the UK's world-class research communities.  They are physical centres where the best of the UK's businesses, scientists and engineers work side by side on late-stage research and development - transforming high potential ideas into new products and services.  The Satellite Applications Catapult was created to foster growth across the economy through the exploitation of space.

The future of carbon capture and storage in the 21st Century

04 October 2017

Is global scale storage of carbon dioxide in sedimentary rocks essential for ensuring a habitable planet by the end of the 21st Century? This talk will give an update from the recent climate research conference, the projected future role of carbon capture and storage, and discuss the vexed issue of negative emissions.

People Power: How citizen science can take your science further

27 September 2017

Introduction to citizen science and how it could be utilised in the work we do at Geoscience Australia, with brief presentations from two coordinators of successful citizen science projects run here in Canberra.

Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) Assessment Tool: From the ground down

20 September 2017

This is a rare opportunity to hear from the experts involved in Cloud based data delivery, data optimisation requirements for interactive multi-criteria assessments and modern technology platforms. This includes a demonstration of the CCS Assessment Tool, with short overviews of methods and technology that underpin the tool's rich functionality.

Outcomes of GA's 2015/16 Science Evaluation

13 September 2017

This talk will present an overview of GA's recent science evaluation process, a two-year endeavour that considered the science programs of the organisation and developed recommendations to guide its future directions.

Bioregional Assessments and the Galilee Basin

06 September 2017

The Galilee Bioregional Assessment is assessing the potential for cumulative impacts from coal and coal seam gas developments. This presentation will outline some of the new research findings of geology and regional hydrogeology that underpin the assessment. Final results on potential impacts will be publicly available in late 2017.

Searching for paleoclimate archives on the East Antarctic margin with the RV Investigator: Sabrina Seafloor Survey 2017

30 August 2017

Early 2017 saw the first full Antarctic geoscience survey on Australia's new National Facility RV Investigator to map and sample the Antarctic continental slope south of Western Australia. The survey aimed to recover paleoclimate records for a major outlet glacier, the Totten Glacier.
