The resistivity and permeability of fractured rocks

05 October 2016

The permeability, or the ability of rocks to allow fluid to pass through it, in the subsurface, is important in managing resources such as geothermal, oil and gas, and groundwater. However, permeability varies strongly from place to place, and cannot always be successfully mapped by standard industry tools such as seismic reflection.

3D model of the major crustal boundaries of Australia: implications for mineral system studies

28 September 2016

This talk will present the first continental-scale 3D model of the Major Crustal Boundaries of Australia. This model is constructed from the 2D linework in map view, with the third (depth) dimension constrained using the geometry of the boundaries interpreted in deep seismic reflection profiles, and then interpolated away from the profiles. 

Supporting disaster risk reduction programs in the Philippines with geospatial analysis

21 September 2016

Between 2008 and 2015, the Australian Aid program, through the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, supported Geoscience Australia partnerships with science and technical agencies in the Government of the Philippines to enhance their capacity to inform better disaster risk reduction. A key input to this work has been the development of value-added spatial information on the exposure, or 'elements at risk', to various natural hazards.

Illuminating Victoria Lithospheric Structure - Victorian and national AusLAMP programs

14 September 2016

The Australian Lithospheric Architecture Magnetotelluric Program (AusLAMP) is a multi-year collaboration between Geoscience Australia, State/Territory geological surveys, universities and AuScope to acquire long- time magnetotelluric data.  This talk will present results from the 2014 maiden AusLAMP deployment over the state of Victoria, and then present an overview of the AusLAMP national-scale program.

Geologic controls on Antarctic Ice-sheet dynamics

07 September 2016

The objective of the Investigating the Cryospheric Evolution of the Central Antarctic Plate (ICECAP) program is to understand the underlying geology, the structure and behaviour of the East Antarctic Ice Sheet, and subglacial processes of East Antarctica.

National Elevation Data: The Fugitive, The Matrix and Viva Las Vegas

31 August 2016

The move to an improved picture of Australia's elevation is changing the way we do business as custodians of national elevation information.

Geoscience Portal - discovery, delivery and analysis of geoscience data as standards-based web services

24 August 2016

The new Geoscience Portal is a state-of-the-art online mapping application that brings together geoscience spatial data from all Australian government jurisdictions, via live web services from locations around Australia.

The Cooper Basin petroleum prospectivity study

10 August 2016

A multi-year study has significantly improved our understanding of the petroleum resource potential of Australia's premier onshore hydrocarbon province. The study has received considerable industry attention for its fresh and innovative approach in changing the perception of the petroleum prospectivity of a mature petroleum province.

Location information - an essential ingredient for a 21st century economy

17 August 2016

Location information is vital for helping people make decisions that affect lives, prosperity, safety and the environment they live in.

Science 101 - Introduction to Earth Science

03 August 2016

'Introduction to Earth Science', the first in a Science 101 seminar series, will include an introductory overview by Geoscience Australia's Chief Scientist, followed by a number of short presentations on geological time, plate tectonics, geological processes and rocks.
