A regional geodetic network to monitor ground surface response to resource extraction in the northern Surat Basin, Queensland

<p>This paper describes the purpose, design and implementation of a new regional-scale geodetic network that has been installed in the Surat Basin, Queensland, and completed in November 2014. The network incorporates 65 survey marks and 40 radar corner reflectors to enable the combination of Global Navigation Satellite System measurements with remotely sensed surface deformation maps derived using the Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar technique. The combination of these geodetic techniques in this region will bring an enhanced understanding of how resource extraction affects the ground surface.</p>
