  • This video explains the concept behind Geoscience Australia's Data Cube, a new way of organising, analysing and managing the large amounts of data collected from Earth Observation Satellites (EOS) studies over time. The Data Cube facilitates efficient data analysis and enables users to interrogate Australia's EOS data from the past and present. It is hoped that the Data Cube will become a useful tool used by remote sensing scientists and data analysts to extract information to support for informing future decision-making and policy development within Australia.

  • Geoscience Australia is providing extensive advice, expertise and support to the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB). The ATSB is leading a seabed mapping and underwater search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight 370 in the southern Indian Ocean. Bathymetry is the study and mapping of the sea floor. It involves obtaining measurements of the depth of the ocean and is equivalent to mapping on land. Before the underwater search for MH370 could begin, it was necessary to accurately map the sea floor to ensure that the search is undertaken safely and effectively. Bathymetry survey vessels spent months at sea, scanning the sea floor with multibeam sonar to gather detailed, high-resolution data. The data has revealed many seabed features for the first time. This computer-animated 'flythrough' shows a visualisation of some of the sea floor terrain in the search area.

  • Tsunami hazard modelling for Tonga shows the potential impacts of tsunami generated by a very large earthquake on the nearby Tongan Trench.

  • An animation of false colour (R:G:B = SWIR band, NIR band, Green band) Landsat imagery for Towoomba for the period from 1998 to 2012. The animation consists of gap-filled Landsat data and shows approximately 'a month per second' in the animation.

  • An animation of fractional cover data(R:G:B =bare soil, green vegetation, non-photosynthetic vegetation) from Landat for Towoomba for the period from 1998 to 2012. The animation consists of gap-filled fractional cover data and shows approximately 'a month per second' in the animation.

  • A selection of images and short animations explaining key aspects of the 2004 Indian Ocean/ Sumatra tsunami, revised and issued for release to the media and other interested organisations on the tenth anniversary of the disaster. This selection updates existing resources previously released by Geoscience Australia.

  • As the Platinum sponsor of the International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium in 2013 (IGARSS 2013), Geoscience Australia had the opportunity to create a short movie, to be shown during the conference opening, highlighting the importance of the geosciences to society, and the incredible importance of remote sensing to the geosciences, both in Australia and globally. This is the text we intend to put on the YouTube page. The movie format is 1080p MPEG4 AVC(H264)/AAC. Other formats can be provided.

  • The Himawari-8 hotspot video represents 12 hours of observations comparing existing MODIS data with the new Himawari-8 data. A small fire starts at 9.30am. H8 catches the ignition as it provides 10 minute update intervals. MODIS sees the fire during its first pass at 10.30am. H8 continues to provide 10minute updates revealing the fires direction and speed. MODIS provides no further data until its second pass at 4.30pm.
