  • An archive of data held in the original Corporate Data Store managed by a combination of GeoCat and GeoMet. It is envisaged that the data should be examined and either properly managed and catalogued or discarded. It was archive in 2010

  • Benfield and Geoscience Australia intend to collaborate to improve their respective understanding of risks from natural hazards in Australia. The aim of this project is to exchange ideas, data and models in order to support the respective groups risk modeling expertise.

  • This is the collection level record for the N.H. (Doc) Fisher Geoscience Library's collection of Antarctic geological field notebooks. Digitised copies of the notebooks were transcribed and validated in 2016-2017 by a dedicated team of volunteers from around Australia via the Australian Museum's DigiVol Citizen Science transcription platform. This project was managed by Information Services Librarian Jane Black with support from Geoscience Australia's Antarctic Geoscience team. The Antarctic field notebooks contain the geological observations recorded by Bureau of Mineral Resources geologists during their trips to Antarctica between 1948 – 1980s. Files include a scanned copy of the original handwritten field notebook, transcription of the notebook’s contents transcribed by volunteers and validated by an experienced geologist, and a csv file of the transcription with Text Encoding Initiative (TEI) tags. The original Antarctic field notebooks are held at the N.H. (Doc) Fisher Geoscience Library at Geoscience Australia, Canberra.

  • This the top-level collection record for all of Geoscience Australia's public vocabularies. The vocabularies are all formulated using the SKOS (Simple Knowledge Organization System) information model and delivered both as machine-readable Resource Description Framework (RDF) data and also as HTML web pages. Each vocabulary is delivered individually as RDF & HTML data and all vocabularies are linked to from both GA's vocabularies index static web page and also from the Australian National Data Service (ANDS)'s Research Vocabularies Australia (RVA) portal. All vocabularies, collections of concepts within vocabularies and individual concepts are identified with URI persistent identifiers of the form: http://pid.geoscience.gov.au/def/voc/ga/{VOCABULARY-KEY}/{COLLECTION-OR-CONCEPT-NAME} This means that you can access all the information about a vocabulary, a collection or a concept directly by entering that URI into your web browser.

  • Geoscience Australia (GA) has created a unique collection of 3D structural and geological models and model inputs for Australia and its near shore regions. Currently the collection contains a variety of 3D volumetric models and surfaces that were produced for specific projects at regional to continental scale. The approximately 40 regional scale models in the collection cover roughly 1/3 of the Australian continent. The models capture 3D stratigraphy and architecture, including the depth to bedrock and the locations of different major rock units, faults and geological structures. The geologic models represent the integration of geophysical surveys, seismic surveys, borehole data, field geology, and geochemical data, the majority of which will now be available through this and other RDSI collections. In their current form, the 3D models provide a valuable input to simulations of geological processes. However, the plan over time is to use the HPC capability at NCI and the large storage volumes available to dynamically integrate the various models and geological, geochemical and geophysical derivative products to then create a unified 3D model for the entire continent. Separately and then cumulatively, these models will provide an important new basis for describing and understanding Australia's geologic evolution and resource wealth. Currently there are no international open standards for the development and storage of 3D geological models, which is why they are difficult to integrate or stitch into nationally integrated data sets. The lack of consistency of the models means that each has to be transformed into formats compatible with existing HP modelling and simulation software. It is hoped that through exposing these 3D geological models into a HP collaborative environment that this will foster and accelerate the development of international standards and tools necessary for the assimilation of 3D geological models into a variety of HP programs. <b> Note: This record has been superseded by eCat 144629:</b> - <a href="https://pid.geoscience.gov.au/dataset/ga/144629">https://pid.geoscience.gov.au/dataset/ga/144629</a>

  • The BMR Yearbooks followed on from and retained the format of the final BMR Annual Report. The 1977 yearbook did not use that word in its title, which was simply BMR77. Later volumes followed this pattern, but added the subtitle: Yearbook of the Bureau of Mineral Resources, Geology and Geophysics, and in common usage they became known as the BMR (later AGSO) Yearbooks.

  • The AGSO Yearbooks retained the format of the BMR Yearbooks, the title change merely following the renaming of the Bureau to the Australian Geological Survey Organisation in 1992. The series ended in 1994, when AGSO became part of the Department of Primary Industries and Energy and information on its activities was incorporated into DPIE Annual Reports.

  • This collection contains satellite imagery or Earth Observations from space created by Geoscience Australia. Among others, the collection includes data from various satellite sensors including Landsat Thematic Mapper and Multi-Spectral Scanner, Terra and Aqua MODIS.

  • Gravity data measure small changes in gravity due to changes in the density of rocks beneath the Earth's surface. The gravity data collection contains both onshore and offshore data acquired on geophysical surveys conducted by Commonwealth, State & NT Governments and the private sector.

  • This is a collection of aerial photography captured from 5 November 2010 to 29 March 2012 and coinciding with a low-water tide occurrence for the purpose of defining the low-water coastline of Tasmania.
