  • These data represent the OZCHRON database of physical age determinations of Australian rocks, and the radiogenic isotope ratios used in determining the ages. OZCHRON datasets comprise bibliographic references, analytical data and pooled results for samples derived using the Rb-Sr, SHRIMP, U-Pb, and Sm-Nd age determination methods.

  • "This dataset shows locations of seismic recording stations. It is generated from a database containing coordinates of all Geoscience Australia's seismic traverses. (related to GeoCat records 32386 and 32407)"

  • The Geofabric version 2.1 product suite comprises six products: - Geofabric Surface Network - Geofabric Surface Cartography - Geofabric Surface Catchments - Geofabric Groundwater Cartography - Geofabric Hydrology Reporting Catchments - Geofabric Hydrology Reporting Regions These products are supported by a collection of documentation including a product guide, product schemas,data product specifications, data dictionaries, tutorials and a view of the product relationships. This documentation contains information that is current at the time of the release of the Geofabric V2.1 products. Documentation is available at http://www.bom.gov.au/water/geofabric/documentation.shtml.

  • Scanned 250k geological maps of Australia in geotiff format. Data is cropped to map graticule, rectified to geographic coordinate system, GDA94, GRS80 ellipsoid. Data is uncompressed, not tiled, 8bit colour, 250dpi and 25m pixel size. The map editions are current only to 2002.

  • These data represent whole rock geochemical analyses from the OZCHEM Database. Each analysis includes a geographic location and a geological description, which includes the host stratigraphic unit, where known, and the lithology. Most samples have been collected by Geoscience Australia field parties. These data are a snapshot at the "Ending Date" of the current database entries and are also a subset of the full database managed by GA which includes data from Papua NewGuinea, Antarctica, Solomon Islands and New Zealand.

  • Data collected from the Australian Regional Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) network, AuScope network and other GNSS observatories located around the world over the last 15 years.

  • The collection is derived from the submission of data under the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act (OPGGSA) and previous legislation. The Petroleum (Submerged Lands) Act (and the Offshore Petroleum Act & OPGGSA) requires petroleum data to be submitted to the State Designated Authority (DA). These Acts also require the DA's to make copies of the data/samples available to the Commonwealth Minister through the Joint Authority. The collection also contains cores, cuttings, paper reports, logs and stratigraphic cores drilled by BMR and a limited collection of water bores and engineering cores from around Canberra.

  • The offshore seismic data consists of field, processed, and seismic navigation data. Reports of the acquisition, processing and interpretation reports plus reprocessed seismic data and reports are also held. The collection is derived from the submission of seismic data under the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act and previous legislation. The Petroleum (Submerged Lands), the Offshore Petroleum, and the Offshore Petroleum and Greenhouse Gas Storage Act 2006 (OPGGSA) requires petroleum data to be submitted to the State Designated Authority (DA). The Act(s) also require the DAs to make copies of the data available to the Commonwealth Minister through the Joint Authority.

  • These data are the time series seismograph, hydroacoustic and infrasound data recorded from Australian National Seismograph Network (ANSN) observatories in Australia, islands in the Pacific, Southern and Indian Ocean's and the Australian Antarctic Territory. ANSN observatories include facilities operated by Geoscience Australia in collaboration with other international agencies. These data are acquired for the purpose of the detection and location of earthquakes and tsunamigenic events within the Australian continent and its surrounds. The dataset is also used to meet a subset of Australia's obligations to the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO) to fulfil Australia's commitment to nuclear explosion monitoring. The seismic waveform data records seismic events to allow for the detection, location estimation (position and depth) and magnitude of earthquakes of magnitude of 3.0 or greater anywhere in Australia. Seismic (Digital). Seismograms (Physical plots (paper & film) and Digital Scans).

  • The Australian Tsunami Database (ATDB) was commissioned by the Australian Geological Survey Organisation as part of a national database of natural hazards in Australia. Its scope, however, is broader with data for the Southwest Pacific, Southeast Asia and Australia. The ATDB aims to furher understanding of the tsunami hazard in these regions by presenting the data from myriad source in a single comprehensive resource that is both accessible and useful. The ATDB is constructed in Borland Paradox for Windows, a relational database that facilitates easy data entry and data extraction. The ATDB contains information regarding tsunami dates, time, locations, effects and comments, and is designed so that it can be linked to the earthquake database run by teh Australian Seismological Centre.
