Come fly with me... the Torres Strait revealed through a new animated

A new 3D animation of the Torres Strait region, revealing features never
before seen in such detail, will be launched in Cairns tomorrow, Thursday 17


The flythrough was generated by Geoscience Australia as part of research to
gain a better understanding of sediments and their effects on seafloor
vegetation and other marine life, with implications for all Torres Strait
communities who depend on the ocean for their livelihoods.


Warren Entsch will launch the new product and representatives from Geoscience
Australia will be available to talk about the animation, the associated data
and its applications for the Torres Strait and other coastal and marine
environments in Australia.


Media packs, including a media release and a CD containing the animated
flythrough, explanatory text, and maps and other images for print and
electronic media, will be available.


WHEN:        10:00am Thursday 17 November 2005

WHERE:       Marlin Room, Shangri-La Hotel, The Marina, Cairns
