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

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?

Nine graduates were selected into the 2017 Geoscience Australia Graduate Program. Come along and learn about their journey to Geoscience Australia.

Do we have the right tools to take Geoscience Australia scientific data into the future?

15 March 2017

Taking Geoscience Australia's scientific data into the future we will need to ensure we have the right tools. Geoscience Australia's Scientific Data section is implementing a range of data platforms to ensure the data holdings of the agency can be transported into the future and be used by ourselves and generations to come.
