Water and mineral resources of Proterozoic rift-basins in Australia

This project addresses the fundamental tectonic and thermal processes involved in the development of basins' resources from water to mineral. It focusses on tectonic and thermal inh more...

Tectonic-mantle-climate interactions in the Southern Ocean

The Cenozoic (past 65 million years) has undergone general cooling from a warm “Greenhouse World” climate to an “Icehouse World” climate, characterised by th more...

Landscape, tectonic and biodiversity

Earth is losing biodiversity at an unprecedented rate and we need urgent, consistent, and cost-effective solutions to prevent the collapse of ecosystems to reach a point from which more...

Machine learning and optimisation for modelling coral reef evolution

Globally, coral reef systems are under threat from major changes in environmental parameters (e.g. sea level, sea surface temperature, pH and water quality). Forward Forward Stratig more...

Controls on the Holocene evolution of the Great Barrier Reef: linking 4D numerical modeling and observational data

This project will investigate the biological and geological processes that control the evolution of coral reef systems (e.g. reef communities, stratigraphic ages and growth rates, r more...

Past climate and environmental impacts on Great Barrier Reef paleoecology over the past 9,000 years.

This project will investigate the links between environmental stress/disturbance, climate, and coral reef composition, diversity and structure by investigating episodes of reef grow more...
