About the Future Science Platforms and the Deep Earth Imaging Future Science Platform

Future Science Platforms (FSPs) are a major new CSIRO initiative and are multi-year investments in frontier science that will help reinvent and create new industries for Australia. In the future Australia’s minerals, energy and water resources will come from far greater depths in the earth and from deep offshore sources. Our ability to find and exploit these resources is limited by the deep and complex cover of sediments and weather material that covers 80% of Australia’s exposed land mass. Deep Earth Imaging science will help us precisely image subsurface rock properties to unlock the potential of this vast and relatively under-explored area.
