Tom Hubble's research has been mainly in the field of marine and riverine site investigation including a major regional geomorphic and sediment mapping project on the Hawkesbury-Nepean River for Sydney Water. Current research projects include: the characterisation of the mass collapse mechanisms which are currently affecting the banks of the Hawkesbury-Nepean River in order to develop a remediation and prevention strategy; and, the evaluation the various stabilising mechanisms that trees and their root systems develop in soil slopes.
