Applying integrated multidisciplinary approaches and innovative technologies in support of future offshore hydrocarbon exploration investment in Australia

21 June 2017

These talks showcase innovation in scientific applications to support future offshore hydrocarbon exploration investment in Australia. The first talk presented by Emmanuelle Grosjean will show how integrated multi-disciplinary studies can be used to predict the energy resource potential in Australia's sedimentary basins. The second talk presented by Alexey Goncharov will demonstrate the benefits of the Ocean Bottom Seismographs data for conventional petroleum exploration.

Geoscience Australia's ICT Taskforce - Findings and recommendations

14 June 2017

Geoscience Australia established an ICT Taskforce to recommend better prioritisation, planning, governance and workforce arrangements to support Geoscience Australia's current and future science activities.  Geoscience Australia endorsed these recommendations on 1 May 2017.

Information is like wine, technology is like fish: the next steps in building Australia's spatial data infrastructure

07 June 2017

Making decisions in the future information economy will be more heavily dependent on trusted, fit-for-purpose location information than ever before.  This seminar provides the latest update from Geoscience Australia on implementation of improvements to Australia's foundation spatial data content, improvements, discoverability and accessibility.

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.
