  • Over many years, GNS Science has developed a large number of datasets, spatial and otherwise, to characterise the petroleum systems within the NZ Exclusive Economic Zone and Extended Continental Shelf. These include petroleum exploration data mined from open file NZP&M Petroleum Reports (PR's) and GNS Science research data generated from reviews of PR's. It also includes data and interpretations developed from GNS Science research programmes, including reprocessing of seismic data, borehole log interpretation and processing, geological reconstructions, 3D and 4D models, etc. The Petroleum Basin Explorer web application is a good starting point for exploration GNS Science petroleum systems data. A lot of this data has been condensed into the public Atlas of Petroleum Prospectivity (see associated record) but other data sets are private to GNS Science.

  • During National Science Week on Sunday 26th August 2007, Geoscience Australia opened its doors to the community to showcase a diverse range of work activities. Members of the public had the opportunity to discover how earthquakes are detected, pan for gold, tour the building, view Australia in 3D, become a seafloor detective and talk to the people who work for Australia's national geoscience research organisation. The photographs of that open day have been converted into thumbmail images and are available on the GA web site.
