CRITICAL GEOLOGY

Our mission is to advance fundamental, robust, quantitative understanding of critical geological phenomena to solve scientific and societal challenges.

RESEARCH THEMES

We take a cross-disciplinary dynamic approach to understand critical geological phenomena using advanced field techniques, world-class analytical tools integrated with state-of-the-art geopspatial data science approaches & computational modelling of natural processes.

Developing a fully quantitative understanding of the mechanisms and drivers that control the formation, transport and distribution of sediments, magma and the reactivity of fluids and heat within the Earth's crust remain key challenges within the solid Earth sciences. Making progress in these areas will enable real, practical solutions to several key societal challenges.

Improving resource security and diversity: Societal impact of our research will include de-risking resource and energy solutions (geothermal energy, water resources, sustainable mineral resource deposits, safe nuclear waste disposal, carbon capture and storage technologies), contribute to public policy and international development and train the next generation of world-class Earth Scientists.
