Lifting the lid on East Antarctica
This project seeks to understand the sedimentary basins hidden beneath the ice of East Antarctica, and to define for the first time the tectonic processes behind their formation and their influence on landscape evolution and glacial activity.
Mining impacts on landscape evolution in the Pilbara
Research is needed to develop better models of hillslope and floodplain geomorphology in the Pilbara, specifically focussed on plant-erosion feedbacks in order to better plan for mine closure.
