Dynamic Earth models, landscape dynamics, and basin evolution in the Phanerozoic

This project is designed to understand the interconnections between mantle dynamics, plate tectonics, paleogeography, basin evolution, and continental shelves. The project will inve 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...

Tracking plate-plume interactions in the seas off eastern and southern Australia

A major challenge in the earth sciences is to understand how the Earth’s deep interior communicates with the surface and how this interaction causes major planetary-scale disr 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...

Dissipative pressure waves and the mechanics of granular materials

This project will experimentally investigate damage zones around seismogenic faults. This will be achieved through examining a novel basic mechanism for instability in solids: volum more...
