The SEAL (South East Australia Linkage) project is a seismic array study of southern New South Wales and northern Victoria undertaken by the Research School of Earth Sciences at the Australian National University. The aim of the study is to use records from distant earthquakes to image major lithospheric transitions across parts of the Delamerian and Lachlan Orogens in south east Australia. SEAL also forms a geographic link between a number of past and future high density array studies in the region, including QUOLL (1999), MALT (1998-2000), TIGGER (2001-2002) and EVA (2005-2006). By combining all datasets (from a total of over 300 stations) in a single tomographic inversion, it will be possible to image the lithosphere beneath south east Australia with unprecedented resolution.
