AuScope aims to establish world-class research infrastructure to enable the characterisation of structure and evolution for the Australian continent. AuScope's Simulation, Analysis and Modelling capability makes it possible to draw together geological data-products and analysis software, for the purpose of developing quality scenario models. This allows researchers to test geological hypotheses and to answer large-scale “what-if ” questions relevant to Australia’s geological resources.
These are images depicting how and where in-place coal layers in the Latrobe Valley, Victoria, Australia create a thermal blanket, that from one perspective could make for a good spot for geothermal energy.
