  • This dataset contains the limit and extent of Northern Australia as defined by the Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility Act 2016 (https://www.legislation.gov.au/Details/C2021C00228) and Northern Australia Infrastructure Facility Amendment (Extension and Other Measures) Act 2021 (https://www.aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_Business/Bills_Legislation/bd/bd2021a/21bd062).

  • <p>Summary <p>Spring point locations compiled for the Nulla Basalt Province <p>A compilation of spring locations as identified through various methods, including existing Queensland Springs Database, topographic mapping, fieldwork visits, landholder citizen scientist mapping, and inspection for neighbouring similar features in Google Earth. This compilation has had locations adjusted through inspecting visible imagery and elevation data to identify the likely positions of springs at higher resolution.

  • The Tasmante bathymetry survey, GA-0125 was acquired by Geoscience Australia onboard the IFREMER N/O L'Atalante from the 12th of February to the 28th of March 1994 using a Simrad EM12 Dual sonar system. The objectives of the west Tasmanian swath-mapping cruise (Tasmante) are to: determine the structure of the continental margin off west Tasmania, on the South Tasman Rise, and on the adjacent abyssal plain; examine the relationships between lithospheric extension in continental crust, the orientation of the seafloor spreading phases, and the formation of the transform margin along west Tasmania and the South Tasman Rise; map sedimentary patterns and processes to build an understanding of Neogene changes in sedimentation and their relationship to tectonic and climatic. This dataset contains a 100m resolution 32-bit geotiff of the Tasmante survey, produced from the processed EM12D bathymetry data of the survey area using the CARIS HIPS and SIPS software. This dataset is published with the permission of the CEO, Geoscience Australia. Not to be used for navigational purposes.

  • The Austrea1 bathymetry survey, GA-0222 was acquired by Geoscience Australia onboard the IFREMER N/O L'Atalante from the 17th of December 1999 to the 11th of January 2000 using a Simrad EM12 Dual sonar system. The main objectives of the shipboard program are to collect seabed and sub- bottom data in specific areas off southeast Australia for marine research (geological and biological), assessment of resource potential, regional marine zone planning and management, and to support Australia's claims under UNCLOS and to map the deep water part of a marine protected area in the Great Australian Bight (GAB). This dataset contains a 100m resolution 32-bit geotiff of the Austrea1 survey, produced from the processed EM12D bathymetry data of the survey area using the CARIS HIPS and SIPS software. This dataset is published with the permission of the CEO, Geoscience Australia. Not to be used for navigational purposes.

  • This product is a rendered 3D model of one of the five ACT fossil emblem candidates, the trilobite Gravicalymene coppinsensis. The format of the file is ply. or Polygon File Format, and it is designed to store 3D data. The model requires no post-scanning manipulation as it is already complete. The purpose of this is to make this file format publicly available to local school communities so they can 3D print the fossil emblems themselves and engage students with Earth science related topics. <b>Acknowledgement:</b> Computed Tomography (CT) Scans and models generated at <a href="https://ctlab.anu.edu.au/">CTLab</a> - National Laboratory for X-Ray Micro Computed Tomography, Research School of Physics, The Australian National University (ANU), Canberra.

  • Geoscience Australia commissioned reprocessing of selected legacy onshore 2D reflection seismic data in the Kidson Sub-basin of the Canning Basin, Cobb Embayment in the SE Canning Basin, NW Canning Basin, and Southern Carnarvon, Western Australia. This reprocessing is a collaboration between the Geoscience Australia Exploring for the Future (EFTF) program and The Government of Western Australia, Department of Mines, Industry Regulation and Safety, Exploration Incentive Scheme (EIS). Reprocessing was carried out by Ion (Cairo) between January 2018 and September 2018. The Canning project comprised 30 lines from 5 vintages of data totalling 1412 km. The Carnarvon project comprised 36 lines from 6 vintages of data totalling 1440 km. This reprocessing is intended to produce an improved quality seismic dataset that will increase confidence in the mapping of the structure and stratigraphy of the onshore sedimentary basins of Western Australia. The new seismic reprocessed data is being made available as pre-competitive information to assist industry to better target areas likely to contain the next major oil, gas and mineral deposits. <b>Processed data for this survey are available on request from clientservices@ga.gov.au - Quote eCat# 144258</b>

  • <p>The Solid Geology of the North Australian Craton 1:1M scale dataset 1st edition (2020) is a seamless chronostratigraphic solid geology dataset of the North Australian Craton that covers north of Western Australia, Northern Territory and north-west Queensland. The data maps stratigraphic units concealed under cover by effectively removing the overlying cover (Liu et al., 2015). This dataset comprises five chronostratigraphic time slices, namely: Cenozoic, Mesozoic, Paleozoic, Neoproterozoic, and Pre-Neoproterozoic. As an example, the Mesozoic time slice (or layer) shows Mesozoic age geology that would be present if all Cenozoic units were removed. The Pre-Neoproterozoic time slice shows what would be visible if all Neoproterozoic, Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic units were removed. <p>Geological units are represented as polygon and line geometries and, are attributed with information regarding stratigraphic nomenclature and hierarchy, age, lithology, and primary data source. The datasets also contains geological contacts, structural features, such as faults and shears, and miscellaneous supporting lines like crater impacts or structural grain within stratigraphic units. <p>This is the second staged release of Geoscience Australia's national time based solid geology mapping program commenced under the Federal Government’s Exploring for the Future program. The Cenozoic time slice layer was extracted from Raymond, O.L., Liu, S., Gallagher, R., Highet, L.M., Zhang, W., 2012. Surface Geology of Australia, 1:1 000 000 scale, 2012 edition [Digital Dataset]. Geoscience Australia, Commonwealth of Australia, Canberra. http://www.ga.gov.au and retains the data schema of that dataset.
