  • Earthquake Risk Model (EQRM) is capable of earthquake scenario ground motion and scenario loss modeling as well as probabilistic seismic hazard (PSHA) and risk (PSRA) modeling. It is a product of Geoscience Australia an Australian Government Agency.

  • This product is a Web Application intended to facilitate the discovery and delivery of Petroleum related datasets and information.

  • Natural hazards have an impact on every Australian State and Territory. These hazards include bushfires, cyclones, earthquakes, floods, landslides, severe weather, tsunami and volcanoes. These phenomena threaten lives and damage private and public assets, as well as disrupt water, power, transport and communication services. These hazards and their associated impacts also can seriously affect employment, public administration and incomes to industry, agriculture and commerce.

  • Cenozoic basins of the Lake Frome region in South Australia host the Beverley in-situ recovery uranium mine as well as the Honeymoon, Four Mile, Oban, and Goulds Dam deposits and recently discovered Pepegoona prospect several kilometres to the north of Beverley. Most deposits occur in organic-rich sands and silts of the Eocene Eyre Formation or Miocene Namba Formation (Beverley). However, the recognition of Eromanga Basin host rocks at the Four Mile West deposit (Heathgate Resources, pers. comm., 2009) extends the age range of host stratigraphic units into the Mesozoic. We define the Frome Uranium Province as the 3-dimensional volume encompassing known and potentially mineralised areas of Cenozoic and Mesozoic basins in the Lake Frome region, constrained on three sides by Proterozoic inliers (Fig. 1). The northern extent of the metallogenic province is unknown; recent discovery of anomalous uranium in Cenozoic sediments near Moomba (Crescent Gold Ltd, September 2009, www.crescentgold.com) points to the potential of the Lake Eyre Basin for uranium mineralisation well to the north of Lake Frome.

  • Analysis of interval seismic velocities from Geoscience Australia's 2008/09 seismic survey 310 in conjunction with seismic reflection interpretation provides new insights into the geology of the Wallaby Plateau. Seismically distinctive core packages and divergent dipping reflector (DDR) packages have been identified. The seismic character of the DDR packages is similar to seaward dipping reflector (SDR) packages of inferred volcanic composition. Seismic velocity profiles analysed before water depth adjustment did not support a compositional similarity and instead indicated affinities between DDR packages and known sedimentary strata in the Houtman Sub-basin, but necessary water depth adjustment of seismic velocities reduces this distinction of SDR, DDR and sedimentary strata. After water depth adjustment discrimination between volcanic and sedimentary strata in DDR or SDR packages is equivocal. Despite ambiguities, velocity analysis has significant implication for the seismically imaged Wallaby Plateau basement. The well constrained drop in interval velocity crossing from a DDR package into a stratified basement is likely due to localised continental blocks within the Plateau. Utilisation of seismically derived velocities for lithologic interpretation has complications but remains a useful process for a rank frontier area such as the Wallaby Plateau.

  • Digital elevation data which describes Australia's landforms and seabed is crucial for addressing issues relating to the impacts of climate change, disaster management, water security, environmental management, urban planning and infrastructure design. The National Elevation Data Framework (NEDF) vision is to ensure that decision makers, investors and the community have access to the best available elevation data to address the needs of today and the decades ahead.

  • These datasets cover all of Ipswich City and are part of the 2009 South East Queensland LiDAR capture project. This project, undertaken by AAM Hatch Pty Ltd on behalf of the Queensland Government captured highly accurate elevation data using LiDAR technology. Available dataset formats (in 1 kilometre tiles) are: - Classified las (LiDAR Data Exchange Format where strikes are classified as ground, non-ground or building) - 1 metre Digital Elevation Model (DEM) in ASCII xyz - 1 metre Digital Elevation Model (DEM) in ESRI ASCII grid - 0.25 metre contours in ESRI Shape

  • The Christmas Island Geographic Information System (CIGIS) is a collection of spatial data, viewing and analysis tools dealing with Christmas Island, Indian Ocean. The data include orthophotography, topographic, mining, cultural and environmental features of the island. This work is part of ongoing service to Territories West of the Attorney General's Department.
