Machine learning for geoscience predictive modelling and knowledge discovery

31 May 2017

Geoscience Australia manages and acquires huge amounts geoscience information. Machine learning for predictive modelling and knowledge discovery has an important role in data integration and interpretation. 

Celebrate what's great! Library & Information Week 2017

24 May 2017

Hear how scientists are using the Geoscience Australia library's resources to inform their work, find out more about the latest library projects and join us for morning tea. This Seminar will consist of 2 parts, a formal presentation for the first 30 minutes followed by the annual Library & Information Week morning tea.

Groundwater Science - Innovation and Transformation

17 May 2017

The ability to explore, assess, monitor, and manage groundwater systems is being transformed by new technologies and supercomputing research infrastructure. These are complemented by novel mathematical and statistical approaches, with significant science innovation enabled through inter-disciplinary methods. This talk highlights recent science advances and results from Geoscience Australia's groundwater programme.

Aboriginal Traditional Knowledge and Geoscience, can they work together?

10 May 2017

Australia is an old drying continent with an interesting geoscientific history. However, Australia's geoscientists are not listening to the old stories, Dreaming Stories, songs, the art and the history of Australia of the First people (its Aboriginal people). Astronomy and meteorology are validating the traditional science, why not geoscience?

The global context of Australia's oil and gas resources: observations from NAPE Summit 2017

03 May 2017

An overview of Australia's oil and gas resources in terms of production history, prospectivity and emerging opportunities will be provided. Parts of the presentation will focus on the challenge to attract new investment into the oil and gas sector in the context of global industry downturn and international competition.

Progress towards deep stratigraphic drilling on the hidden continent of Zealandia

26 April 2017

The continent of Zealandia has risen from obscurity to attract considerable attention as the seventh largest continent. Proposed deep stratigraphic drilling on the Lord Howe Rise, the backbone to northern Zealandia, will provide a step-change in our understanding of one of Earth's last remaining geoscientific frontiers.

Recent Developments in Science and Innovation Policy

19 April 2017

In December 2015 the National Innovation and Science Agenda was announced built on the four pillars of culture and capital; collaboration; talent and skills; and Government as an exemplar. This presentation will look at how this agenda is being implemented and other developments in science and innovation policy over the last year.


Discrete Global Grid Systems - A "New" Approach to an Old Spatial Challenge

12 April 2017

"Discrete Global Grid Systems" (DGGS) are an emerging and disruptive technology backed by a new international standard. They represent a new way of organising and working with spatial data that can help us overcome some of the critical challenges of the conventional approach to GIS and Big Data.

Innovation and Geoscience Australia - the road so far

05 April 2017

Innovation is a hot topic across the Australian Public Service and the Australian community. But what does 'innovation' actually mean? Ideas and practical applications are evolving rapidly in the APS and private enterprise - what could be applied at Geoscience Australia?

Volcanoes, Iron, and Phytoplankton in the Southern Ocean

03 April 2017

Director of Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS), University of Tasmania, Professor Mike Coffin will be presenting a public talk on the Kerguelen Plateau active submarine volcanoes surveyed in 2016 by RV Investigator and the impact they have on the growth of phytoplankton in the Southern Ocean.
