Brief description

In 2010 and 2011, the Australian Government released exploration acreage in the Perth, Mentelle and Southern Carnarvon basins off the southwest margin of Australia. This release was underpinned by two new marine geophysical surveys (GA-310 and GA-2476) that were conducted by Geoscience Australia in late 2008 and early 2009 as part of the Australian Government's Offshore Energy Security Program. These surveys acquired a range of pre-competitive geological and geophysical data that included seismic reflection, gravity, magnetic and swath bathymetry measurements, as well as seafloor dredge samples.

The new surveys provided a total of about 26 000 line km of new gravity and magnetic data that add to existing data from around 150 previous marine surveys conducted off the southwest margin since 1960. This Record describes the integration and levelling of the new gravity and magnetic data with existing data, both offshore and onshore, to produce a unified gravity and magnetic dataset for use in constraining regional tectonics, basin structure and petroleum prospectivity.

Levelling is a key step in processing ship-borne gravity and magnetic data. This process minimises the mistie errors at ship-track cross-overs that arise from factors such as positioning errors, instrument drift and lack of diurnal corrections to magnetic data. Without accounting for these cross-over errors, gridded data can be rendered un-interpretable by artefacts and distortions at line cross-overs.
