Summary(Plain Language Summary, not published)
Airborne surveys of the gravity gradient and magnetic field were flown at heights of 80 m above the ground in parallel lines spaced at 200 m across the survey area. Gravity gradiometer surveys measure the variation of the gradient of the Earth's gravitational field. The gravity gradiometer and magnetic field surveys reflect the variations in density and magnetic susceptibility properties of the Earth`s crust. These observations underpin geological mapping and modelling of the area, support mineral/hydrocarbon exploration activities, and provide useful and necessary information for communities, aboriginal associations, and government to make land use decisions.
