Earth System Science - Crust to Core


This Group studies how processes operating on all time and length scales interact to generate the key large-scale features of the Earth through deep time to the present.

We address the Earth System in an integrative way, utilising a diversity of approaches. Our aim is to build as a group on our individual research and skills strengths in diverse areas of Earth Science, from field mapping and structural analysis to seismic tomography, from sedimentology and paleoceanography to petrology, and from geochemistry and isotope geochronology to mineral physics, to improve our knowledge and understanding of Earth processes. The research will have applications to mineral and ore genesis, exploration for geo-resources, and long-term climate change. The group will capitalise on the applied aspects to foster links to other geoscience groups and develop funding streams.
