  • 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.

  • Fossil shells can tell us about past environments. This video presents examples of shell fossils that help us to understand where oceans were located in Australia millions of years ago. The shells lived in shallow marine environments before they died and became part of the rocks formed from sand and silt at the bottom of the water. Brachiopods from Woolshed Creek in Canberra and a large spiral shell from the Nullarbor Plain are showcased along with an elevation map of Australia.
