QLD Tech talk: Using real-time seismic nodes to explore the Earth, Moon & Mars

Tuesday, November 8, 2022

On the 8th of November we'll be welcoming Dr Gerrit Olivier the Director of Planetary Geophysics at Fleet Space Technologies and this will be held from 5pm at "Hello Gorgeous", in Newstead. Bookings here.

Finger food from 17.15

AGM from 18.00

Technical Talk from 18.15

Virtual (Zoom) registration:

Gerrit's talk will be: 

Using real-time seismic nodes to explore the Earth, Moon & Mars

As most of the outcropping and shallow mineral deposits have been found, new technology is imperative to finding the hidden critical mineral deposits required to transition to renewable energy. In this talk I will show Fleet’s progress in developing seismic technology to image the subsurface in real-time to address this challenge in an environmentally-friendly manner. I’ll also discuss our ambitions to deploy compact geophysical rovers on the Moon and Mars to image the subsurface to find resources for future colonisation missions.

Monday, September 4, 2023

The 8th International Workshop on Airborne Electromagnetics will be held at Fitzroy Island, Queensland Australia, in person between the 4th and 8th September 2023. Fitzroy Island is an unspoilt tropical paradise of rainforest and beaches within the calm sheltered waters of the Great Barrier Reef. The island is a National Park, with walking trails, tropical plants and animals, and abundant marine life.

The Workshop will encompass advances in airborne electromagnetic systems, modelling and interpretation. Case studies covering geotechnical, mining, energy, groundwater and environmental applications will be presented. The event will be a platform to contribute, discuss and learn about airborne electromagnetics and provide a forum for in-depth conversations on the subject area with colleagues from Australia and worldwide.

A four-day program will feature speakers from academia, government and industry, with keynotes delivered by leading experts in their respective streams.

We look forward to welcoming you to the 8th International Airborne Electromagnetics Workshop.
