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.

The Australian Flood Risk Information Portal: a case study in being more agile

11 May 2016

Building an agile culture is an important part of the Geoscience Australia's Science First Program to deliver better services, empower people and support advanced geoscience.  This involves the creation of multi-disciplinary teams to undertake software development projects in a collaborative and iterative manner.  The first project tackled under the new software development regime was an update to the Australian Flood Risk Information Portal.

Australia's Resources and Energy Commodity Outlook

04 May 2016

The Resources and Energy Quarterly March 2016 edition was released by the Office of the Chief Economist on 8 April 2016. The talk will outline developments in Australia's resources and energy sectors and the prospects for key commodities over the next five years.

Risk from induced earthquakes in the Netherlands

27 April 2016

The Slochteren gas field in north-east Holland has made the country energy self-sufficient for the past four decades. However, the large volumes of gas extracted have caused extensive subsidence, manifesting itself as earthquakes. This talk will provide an overview of the risk management issues faced in north-east Holland as a result of these induced earthquakes.
