The Tasman Frontier region is a vast submerged continental fragment of over 3,000,000 sq km between Australia, New Zealand and New Caledonia. It hosts unexplored sedimentary basins, some of which may share a common geological origin with the Taranaki and Gippsland basins, where petroleum production is established. The Tasman Frontier database is a compilation of digital seismic reflection data from the region that are able to be made publicly available, as at March 2012. The database contains c. 100,000 line km of seismic reflection data that have been modified to seg-y format with uniform header information and byte location positions of key fields, so that they can be easily loaded into a computer workstation.
The project is a collaborative initiative between GNS Science, Geoscience Australia, Service Géologique de Nouvelle-Calédonie (SGNC-DIMENC), Agence de Développement Economique de la Nouvelle-Calédonie (ADECAL), and Institut français de recherche pour l'exploitation de la mer (IFREMER).
