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.

Australia's transitioning gas market

29 March 2017

An affordable and reliable gas supply is crucial for millions of Australians, whether it be for heating, electricity, or manufacturing. This presentation will discuss the state of Australia's east coast gas market, how it got there, and how the Australian Government is responding.

Meet Geoscience Australia's 2017 Graduates

22 March 2017

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.

Geoscience information and Web 3.0: what Geoscience Australia is doing at the forefront of scientific data delivery

08 March 2017

Publishing geoscience information is one way Geoscience Australia adds value to the nation. Web 3.0 technologies enhance information discoverability and description for people and enable the machine-to-machine Internet. This talk will describe what Web 3.0 is and how Geoscience Australia is leading government in its use of it. 

Delivering Geological Data Using Web Services and International Standards

01 March 2017

Web services have become the accepted way of delivering free and open spatial data over the internet from government data providers.  This presentation will show how web service data standards, such as GeoSciML, are used to ensure that data conform to agreed structures and can be used to support evidence-based analysis and research.

National Positioning Infrastructure - Testing a Satellite based Augmentation System (SBAS)

22 February 2017

This presentation will give a brief introduction to the National Positioning Infrastructure Capability (NPIC) and its components. Details will be provided of the Satellite Based Augmentation System (SBAS) testbed (NPIC component 1) that was funded in the 2016/17 MYEFO and commenced in February 2017.

Faults, gases and leakage: Locating and quantifying CO2 and methane leaks

15 February 2017

How do you find and measure leakage from geological storage sites or gas fields? This talk will provide an overview of our understanding of the gas migration behaviour in the near surface gained through large field experiments and observations at natural seepage sites.
