The AAPG Asia Pacific Region will hold a 2-day Geological Technical Workshop (GTW) in Sydney from 6-7 July 2022.   The theme is Structural Geology and our Future – The Role of Tectonic Geoscience in Energy Transition, Focusing on the Asia-Pacific Region.

The proposed sessions/sub-themes:

  1. Regional tectonic settings - Plate movements within the region; tectonic history; palaeo-tectonic reconstructions
  2. New structural and tectonic techniques: remote sensing; potential fields; digitalisation; data integration; modelling and simulation
  3. Tectonic stresses, faulting and fracture systems, including implications for CO2 sequestration and geothermal/thermodynamic energy
  4. Geomechanics and prediction of trapping configurations
  5. Fold and Thrust Belts in the Asia Pacific Region
  6. Structural controls in base metal, rare Earth, and mineral exploration
  7. Tectonic settings and structural regimes key to Hydrogen and Helium exploration
  8. Impact of tectonics on geohazard assessment and geo-engineering
  9. Structural and fracture understanding for groundwater management

ASEG members are able to register at the AAPG member rate. Additional details can be found here.

Description

Mixed siliciclastic–carbonate margins receive significant amounts of both terrigenous siliciclastic material from rivers and carbonate material from biogenic sources. The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) is the largest mixed siliciclastic-carbonate margin on earth and detailed stratigraphic analysis is a key tool for understanding the evolution of this sedimentary system; however, the stratigraphy of the offshore central GBR is poorly understood due to its designation as a UNSECO World Heritage Site. This designation limited the acquisition of reflection seismic data over the GBR and has prevented detailed stratigraphic analysis of the reef and its margins. Geoscience Australia conducted limited seismic surveys over the GBR during the 1970-80s though much of this data has remained unprocessed and subsequently unpublished. Key results from this research are:

1. Significant improvements can be made to the seismic reflection data by applying modern processing algorithms.
2. Shelf-edge deltas near Townsville are preserved by their deposition on to an upper slope broad, low gradient terrace which also limits the transport of coarse sediment downslope. Their ‘lobe’ shape indicates a supply dominated environment.
3. Shelf-edge deltas from the Grafton and Flora Passages are clearly incised by submarine canyons that transport sediment downslope. In the Cairns region shelf-edge deltas have a cuspate form and indicate a wave dominated environment.
4. Reef growth is common on the topsets and upper forests of these deltas indicating that these coarse sedimentary environments are favourable for coral colonisation; therefore, as the shelf extends due to lowstand delta deposition, new habitats are also created for coral reefs.
5. The process driving the clear differences between the northern and central GBR is not well understood; however, ongoing subsidence of the central GBR likely plays a significant role.

Sedimentary processes at the margin of the GBR are clearly diverse. Documenting these differences will aid the interpretation of other modern mixed margins and those in the geological record.

NSW Tech Night: Enhancing statewide geophysics with high resolution company data

Wednesday, October 20, 2021
1800
1900

Titles &  Presenters:

Enhancing statewide geophysics with high resolution company data - Dr Sam Matthews (GSNSW)

Proposed NSW geophysical acquisition 2021-2022 - Astrid Carlton (GSNSW)

Date & Time: Wednesday 20th October 2021, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm AEDT

Registration: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_fWZnFRp1Q2q9wOapDGGHkA

Overviews:

Sam’s talk will provide a behind the scenes look at the creation of enhanced statewide geophysical merges incorporating high resolution company data. Following the QA/QC and metadata harvest from decades of legacy geophysics data, a specially created algorithm is applied to provide a quantitative aid in survey selection for inclusion in the merges. A small data workshop is included which highlights how all open-file geophysical data in NSW can be accessed for free through our online portal MinView.

Astrid’s talk will detail the expansive array of regional geophysics occurring throughout NSW from 2021 and into the future. The recent completion of the Cobar AEM and AMR surveys, as well as the Mundi AEM survey are only the tip of the iceberg in NSW. A wealth of regional geophysical surveys spanning a wide range of techniques are also in the works and promise exciting data.
