Sedimentary basins around the world are critical to sustaining modern life on Earth. These basins can be thought of as containers that hold water, minerals, energy, and can potentially be used to store carbon dioxide. Unpacking how they form, and where those resources and storage opportunities may lie is a sizeable feat for the best of us...Read More
Since 2013, geophysicists have systematically surveyed the Australian crust and mantle. Recently, the AusLAMP team celebrated completing the South Australian portion of the project, shining a light on potential ore deposits ‘hiding’ at depth.Read More
I write this in between the AuScope field, laboratory and digital infrastructure planning workshops, as we hone our capability to address national geoscience research challenges over the coming decade.
The discussion around the research challenges relating to water, minerals, energy and geohazards has been particularly interesting, and we’re seeing new synergies across our field arise. It's an exciting time.Read More
Australia has benefited from rich mineral endowment for almost two centuries, but now faces an urgent challenge: finding enough critical minerals in more complex environments to supply low carbon economies globally.Read More
Dynamic. Thinking big. In it for the long haul.
These are three key leadership qualities for any field. But for Dietmar Müller, the award-winning geoscience professor leading Sydney University’s EarthByte Group, they take on tangible meaning as he investigates Earth’s complex evolution.Read More
AuScope is excited to appoint geospatial science leader, Doctor Lesley Arnold to our independent management board. Lesley joins us with a wealth of experience in the field across Australia and abroad. Welcome Lesley!Read More
Over the weekend we were proud to discover five geoscientists, including two AuScopers, amongst the Order of Australia awards list for their outstanding achievements and service in science.Read More
AuScope thanks the Australian Government for new funding to replace age-dating instrument that critically underpins natural resource discovery and frontier planetary science.Read More
A telescope burrowing 300km beneath Australia’s vast and parched land may seem more of a Jules Verne thought bubble than a not-too-distant scientific reality, but such a concept could exist in the next decade if the nation’s geoscientific community has its way.Read More
We uncover one humble scientist’s passion for geodesy (where maths meets Earth), journey with AuScope from the start, and sizeable feats for positioning in Australia.Read More
It seems that each time I write one of these I start out by saying what an exciting quarter it has been. That is once again the case!
This time though, a quarter punctuated by appreciation of personal achievement, as well as the inclusion of some new faces in the AuScope family.Read More
AuScope Grid’s Informatics Platforms team at CSIRO Mineral Resources are proud to announce the release of the completely redesigned, rebuilt and expanded AuScope Discovery Portal.Read More
Discover Meghan’s passion for plate tectonics and deep Earth, swag of academic achievements, and ambitions for research innovation in Oz.Read More
Community members and future collaborators, please join us in building the future of Australian geoscience research on 18 – 19 October in Adelaide.Read More
Researchers can now create globally unique sample IDs (IGSNs) and link metadata with analytical data for current and future research.Read More
Partners, Geoscience Australia set to lead the charge on two world class projects.Read More
There is a mystery in Earth’s ancient past, and the clues lie in ancient cratons of Australia and other places. What was the Earth like before the plates formed? AuScope’s Simulation and Modelling team led by Prof. Louis Moresi have a new theory.Read More
AuScope uses aftershock seismometers to record aftershocks and delineate faulting with more precise earthquake locations.Read More
In April 2018, ANU seismologists headed to remote northern South Australia to test an exciting proof of concept in seismic surveying: a new and cheaper approach to producing detailed, crustal-scale cross sections of the Earth.Read More
In 2016, AuScope awarded three $10k travel bursaries to researchers for their outstanding contribution to science using AuScope infrastructure. We caught up with Dr. Simon Johnson, Associate Prof. Hrvoje Tkalčić, and Gary Johnson to learn about the ongoing impact of their travels.Read More
