  • This resource includes bathymetry data acquired during the Southern Gulf of Carpentaria bathymetry survey using Simrad EM300 and Reson Seabat 8101 multibeam sonar systems. Southern Gulf of Carpentaria bathymetry survey (GA0276) was led by Dr. Peter Harris (Geoscience Australia) aboard the Marine National Facility's research vessel Southern Surveyor, from the 23rd of March to the 13th of April 2005. The primary objective of the expedition was to map submerged reefs to ascertain their geomorphic nature and document the benthic communities and fauna. This dataset contains four 4m to 7m resolution 32-bit floating point geotiff files of the bathymetry in five study areas and transits, derived from the processed EM300 and Reson 8101 bathymetry data, using CARIS HIPS and SIPS software. A detailed report on the survey is provided in: Harris, P et al. 2006.

This dataset is not to be used for navigational purposes. This dataset is published with the permission of the CEO, Geoscience Australia.

  • This resource contains a profile curvature grid for the greater Darwin Harbour region as part of a baseline seabed mapping program of Darwin Harbour and Bynoe Harbour. This project was funded through offset funds provided by an INPEX-led Ichthys LNG Project to the Northern Territory Government’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NTG-DENR) with co-investment from Geoscience Australia (GA) and the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS). The intent of this program is to improve knowledge of the marine environments in the Darwin and Bynoe Harbour regions by collating and collecting baseline data that enable the creation of thematic habitat maps and information to underpin marine resource management decisions. The profile curvature grid was derived from a compilation of multiple surveys undertaken by GA, AIMS and NTG-DENR between 2011 and 2017, including GA0333 (Siwabessy et al., 2015), GA0341 (Siwabessy et al., 2015), GA0351/SOL6187 (Siwabessy et al., 2016), GA4452/SOL6432 (Siwabessy et al., 2017), GA0356 (Radke et al., 2017), and GA0358 and GA0359 (Radke et al., 2018), adding to those from previous surveys GA4425 and GA0333 collected by GA, AIMS, NTG-DENR and Darwin Port Authority. It measures the curvature of the surface in the direction of the slope.

  • This resource contains a rugosity grid for the greater Darwin Harbour region as part of a baseline seabed mapping program of Darwin Harbour and Bynoe Harbour.

The intent of this program is to improve knowledge of the marine environments in the Darwin and Bynoe Harbour regions by collating and collecting baseline data that enable the creation of thematic habitat maps and information to underpin marine resource management decisions. The rugosity grid was derived from a compilation of multiple surveys undertaken by GA, AIMS and NTG-DENR between 2011 and 2017, including GA0333 (Siwabessy et al., 2015), GA0341 (Siwabessy et al., 2015), GA0351/SOL6187 (Siwabessy et al., 2016), GA4452/SOL6432 (Siwabessy et al., 2017), GA0356 (Radke et al., 2017), and GA0358 and GA0359 (Radke et al., 2018), adding to those from previous surveys GA4425 and GA0333 collected by GA, AIMS, NTG-DENR and Darwin Port Authority. The data is calculated from the bathymetry data. It represents seabed rugosity at a local seabed. The rugosity is measured as surface area. Higher surface area corresponds with higher seabed rugosity.

  • This resource contains a multibeam bathymetry grid for the greater Darwin Harbour region as part of a baseline seabed mapping program of Darwin Harbour and Bynoe Harbour.

  • This is a compilation of all the processed single beam and multibeam data that are publicly released and that Geoscience Australia holds in its database for the WA Margins within the following area: Latitude -26 to -31South and Longitude 111 to 115.5 East.

  • The local Moran I grid calculates local autocorrelation of the bathymetry grid. It indicates local heterogeneity. The large and positive values represent positive autocorrelation or clumped pattern; the large negative values represent negative autocorrelation or checkerboard pattern; the values close to zero represent random local pattern. The grid was created from the bathymetry grid of Darwin Harbour. Please see the metadata of the bathymetry grid for details (GeoCat no: 74915).

  • This is a compilation of all the processed multibeam bathymetry data that Geoscience Australia holds in its database for the Cato, West and Birds Island (Coral Sea) in the northeastern coast of Queensland. The compilation and the processing of GA's bathymetric data in the Coral Sea was produced following a request by an external client in July 2013.

  • These data were derived from the Australian Bathymetry database held at Geoscience Australia. The dataset comprises depth, seabed morphometric parameters: slope, aspect, topographic relief and rocky layer, and geomorphic features.

  • This is a compilation of all the processed multibeam bathymetric data that Geoscience Australia holds in its database for the Bremer Sub-Basin. The location of the sub-basin lies in deep water off the southwest margin of WA between Albany and Esperance at the western end of the Great Australian Bight.

  • Seabed mapping data collected using a Kongsberg 2040C multibeam sonar system aboard research vessel MVYolla including bathymetry (2 metre resolution), backscatter (1metre resolution), watercolumn and preliminary hard bottom classification. Seabed mapping in Apollo Marine Park with 114 square kilometres of continuous seabed mapping conducted by Deakin University in partnership with iXblue for Parks Australia.
