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



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.
