Outcomes of the National Flood Risk Information Project 2012-16

20 July 2016

This talk will discuss the outcomes of the National Flood Risk Information Project to improve accessibility to authoritative flood study information across Australia.

International Ocean Discovery Program in the Australian region

08 July 2016

Professor Neville Exon will present an overview of upcoming International Ocean Discovery Program expeditions in the Australian region, and outline opportunities for involvement of Australian scientists.

High precision geochronology of tuffs

06 July 2016

This presentation will summarise the recent improvements in Uranium-Lead (U-Pb) isotope dilution thermal ionization mass spectrometry (ID-TIMS) geochronology techniques, and how this can be useful for dating tuffs in Australian basins.

Mapping Australia's mineral potential: A new view of the continent's Ni-Cu-PGE prospectivity

29 June 2016

This talk will provide an overview of the recent progress on continental-scale mapping of Australia's mineral potential as applied to nickel, copper and platinum-group element (Ni-Cu-PGE) deposits hosted by igneous intrusions.

A timescale 'paradigm shift': new techniques in biostratigraphy calibration

22 June 2016

Geoscience Australia researchers have been developing new geochronological techniques that improves the calibration of the Permian biostratigraphy timescale. This work is important for understanding the stratigraphy and correlation of units of these economically significant coal basins in eastern Australia.

What lies beneath: understanding the lithospheric architecture of Australia

15 June 2016

Australia's surface geology is dominated by relatively recent sediment layers limiting exposure of the older prospective basement. By examining geophysical data, we can map differences in important properties of the lithosphere, revealing the geological structures beneath the obscuring cover of Australia.

Science First: Building the Digital Science capability

08 June 2016

Geoscience Australia's Science First program was initiated in mid-2015 to achieve better ICT services, empowered people and focus on advanced geoscience. The program is harnessing the opportunities for Geoscience Australia to continue to provide first class geoscience in the future by embracing Digital Science. 

Influencing the uptake of sensor data in emergency management

01 June 2016

This talk will explore how data product developers can tailor products to increase the likelihood of their product being incorporated in emergency management decision making.

Discover more with Geoscience Australia's Doc Fisher Library

25 May 2016

This presentation will celebrate Library and Information Week 2016, by exploring Geoscience Australia's NH (Doc) Fisher Library's current citizen science project to make their collection of Antarctic geological field notebooks more discoverable.

Designed for Impact: Geoscience Australia's Exposure Report

18 May 2016

Learn about the role of the Emergency Management Australia in disaster recovery and how Geoscience Australia provides relevant and timely fundamental geographic information to enhance government's situational awareness of disaster affected communities.
