  • Soils are one of the key factors which limit human settlement in Australia. Few Australian soils are of good quality - most are naturally infertile. This map shows the extent of soil limitations across the country. In order to overcome problems associated with the many classifications in existence, this map classes soils according to limitations of use - in particular chemical and physical limitations. Altogether, four primary groupings are shown and these are further divided into a total of 29 mapping units. A detailed table relates these units to traditionally classified soil profiles and landforms.

  • This product brings together a selection of AGSO's continental-scale digital datasets in one digital data package (on two CD's). Datasets have been compiled using a standardised coastline, projection and central meridian enabling easy integration of any of the individual datasets. Some datasets are primary (geology, metamorphism, regions), whilst others are subsets of AGSO's major databases and datasets (magnetics, whole-rock geochemistry, mineral deposits etc). Several datasets (e.g., geology, regolith, regions and ROCKCHEM) have more than one attribute and hence from the one dataset, several different themes can be derived and displayed or plotted. Datasets have been formatted for use with Arcinfo/Arcview and Mapinfo software. This two CD package contains the digital data (Disc 1) and A3 postscript files of the more popular base maps and integrations so that you can print out your own maps (Disc 2).

  • This map shows copper locations by Event, Type and Status. It also shows copper regions and copper occurrences that fall within these regions. The map includes a Time-Space-Event chart, and pie charts.

  • SUMMARY Geoscience Australia operates and maintains a state-of-the-art network of stations and sophisticated instrumentation that monitors natural and anthropogenic (human-made) hazards in Australia and around the globe through its Geophysical Network Section. The key responsibilities for the Geophysical Network Section are to: operate and maintain the Australian National Seismic Network (ANSN) and Urban Monitoring (UM) networks; operate and maintain Australian Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) seismic, hydro-acoustic and infrasound technologies, as part of Australia's commitment to support monitoring of worldwide nuclear testing; operate and maintain a national network of geomagnetic observatories which forms a part of a global observatory network; provide technical expertise and advice to Geoscience Australia projects, such as the National Geospatial Reference Systems Risk Research Group and the JATWS (Joint Australian Tsunami Warning System); and, provide technical and operational support to the Risk Research Group for significant Australian earthquake events and aftershock deployment studies. Geophysical data archives are stored on-site and can be freely downloaded from GA or international data centres. Seismic data can be accessed at GA and Incorporated Research Institutions for Seismology (IRIS) and geomagnetic data at INTERMAGNET. Seismic data from Geoscience Australia's Geophysical Networks feeds into important hazard maps including the probabilistic national earthquake hazard map and the probabilistic Tsunami hazard map. Geomagnetic data feeds into the International Geomagnetic Reference Field and has been used to develop the first 3-D conductivity map of Australia. Key words: Geophysical Networks, geomagnetism, earthquake, tsunami, nuclear monitoring
