Description: The Total Magnetic Intensity (greyscale) image is created from a composite TMI grid of the Australian region with a grid cell spacing of ~3 seconds of arc (approximately 80 m). This image only includes airborne-derived TMI data for onshore and near-offshore continental areas. Since the fifth edition was released in 2010 data from 41 new surveys have been added to the database, acquired mainly by the State and Territory Geological Surveys. It is estimated that 31 500 000 line-kilometres of survey data were acquired to produce the grid data, 4 500 000 line-kilometres more than for the previous edition. Details of the specifications of individual airborne surveys can be found in the Fourteenth Edition of the Index of Airborne Geophysical Surveys (Percival, 2014). Matching of the grids in the database was achieved using a program called Gridmerge, which was originally developed within Geoscience Australia and has now been commercialised. This program was used to merge 41 new surveys to the 5th Edition Total Magnetic Intensity Anomaly Grid of Australia (Milligan et al., 2010). The 5th Edition merged 795 individual grids to create the compilation and to constrain long wavelengths, an independent data set, the Australia-wide Airborne Geophysical Survey (AWAGS) airborne magnetic data, was used to control the base levels of those survey grids which overlapped the AWAGS data (Milligan et al., 2009). As the 5th Edition was used as a base grid for the Gridmerge operation the new 6th Edition is essentially levelled to AWAGS. Individual and merged grids may be downloaded from the Geophysical Archive Data Delivery System (GADDS) on the Australian Government's Geoscience Portal at References: Milligan, P.R., Minty, B.R.S., Richardson, M. and Franklin, R., 2009.
