  • The unfiltered potassium grid is a derivative of the 2019 radiometric grid of Australia. The radiometric, or gamma-ray spectrometric method, measures the natural variations in the gamma-rays detected near the Earth's surface as the result of the natural radioactive decay of potassium (K), uranium (U) and thorium (Th). The data are collected on airborne geophysical surveys conducted by Commonwealth, State and Northern Territory Governments and the private sector. The 2019 unfiltered potassium grid has a cell size of about 100 m (0.001 degrees) and shows potassium element concentrations of the Australia region. Potassium is the seventh most abundant element in the Earth's crust. The potassium concentration grid can be used to locate minerals and compounds containing potassium.

  • The unfiltered thorium grid is a derivative of the 2019 radiometric or gamma-ray grid of Australia which is a merge of over 600 individual gamma-ray spectrometric surveys. The radiometric, or gamma-ray spectrometric method, measures the natural variations in the gamma-rays detected near the Earth's surface as the result of the natural radioactive decay of potassium (K), uranium (U) and thorium (Th). The data are collected on airborne geophysical surveys conducted by Commonwealth, State and Northern Territory Governments and the private sector. The 2019 unfiltered thorium grid has a cell size of about 100 m (0.001 degrees) and shows thorium element concentrations of the Australia region.

  • Total magnetic intensity (TMI) data measures variations in the intensity of the Earth magnetic field caused by the contrasting content of rock-forming minerals in the Earth crust. Magnetic anomalies can be either positive (field stronger than normal) or negative (field weaker) depending on the susceptibility of the rock. The first vertical derivative (1VD) grid is derived from the 2019 Total magnetic Intensity (TMI) grid of Australia which has a grid cell size of ~3 seconds of arc (approximately 80 m). As the vertical derivative filter is essentially a high-pass filter, longer wavelengths are suppressed, and shorter wavelengths emphasized. The magnetic units of the data are in nT per metre.

    Digital Elevation data record the terrain height variations from the processed point- or line-located data recorded during a geophysical survey. This Tanami NS 5ZB - ground elevation geoid grid (radar) is elevation data for the NTGS Tanami NS 5ZB Region Detailed Airborne Magnetic Radiometric and Digital Elevation Survey, NT, 2018. This survey was acquired under the project No. 1312 for the geological survey of NT. The grid has a cell size of 0.00018 degrees (approximately 20m). This grid contains the ground elevation relative to the geoid for the NTGS Tanami NS 5ZB Region Detailed Airborne Magnetic Radiometric and Digital Elevation Survey, NT, 2018. It represents the vertical distance from a location on the Earth's surface to the geoid. The data are given in units of meters. The processed data is checked for quality by GA geophysicists to ensure that the final data released by GA are fit-for-purpose.

    The radiometric, or gamma-ray spectrometric method, measures the natural variations in the gamma-rays detected near the Earth's surface as the result of the natural radioactive decay of potassium (K), uranium (U) and thorium (Th). The data collected are processed via standard methods to ensure the response recorded is that due only to the rocks in the ground. The results produce datasets that can be interpreted to reveal the geological structure of the sub-surface. The processed data is checked for quality by GA geophysicists to ensure that the final data released by GA are fit-for-purpose. This radiometric thorium grid has a cell size of 0.00018 degrees (approximately 20m) and shows thorium element concentration of the NTGS Tanami NS 4NE Region Detailed Airborne Magnetic Radiometric and Digital Elevation Survey, NT, 2018 in units of parts per million (or ppm). The data used to produce this grid was acquired in 2018 by the NT Government, and consisted of 10063 line-kilometres of data at 100m line spacing and 60m terrain clearance. To constrain long wavelengths in the grid, an independent data set, the Australia-wide Airborne Geophysical Survey (AWAGS) airborne magnetic data, was used to control the base levels of the survey grid.
