    A Social License to Undertake Research

    Modern research science is a capital-intensive industry. Scientific resources and agencies are concentrated in wealthy developed nations with the economic and infrastructure base to support such fundamental endeavours. Nature, however, respects no such distinctions - and we com...

    The ongoing search for Hadean crust on Earth

    The familiar concentric layer cake structure of the Earth depicted in textbooks formed within a few hundred million years of the accretion of the planet. This is when the metallic core segregated, the oceans condensed, the atmosphere outgassed and the first rocky crust formed....

Researchers from CET, GSWA and Monash University were successful in winning a grant from the Australian Research Council (ARC) linkage scheme. The project is titled “Reducing 3D Geological Uncertainty via Improved Data Interpretation Methods”.  This project aims to improve the integrity of 3D geological models which heavily relies on robust and consistent data interpretation.  The project proposes an innovative workflow for 3D modelling to minimise geological uncertainty by developing and applying advanced visualisation and intelligent decision support methods which can be considered as a spelling and grammar checker for geological interpretation.  This grant (2014-2017) was awarded to Prof. Mark Jessell, A/Prof Eun-Jung Holden, Prof Adrian Baddeley, Prof  Peter Kovesi, Assist/Prof. Mark Lindsay, Assist/Prof  Daniel Wedge, Dr. Jonathan Hronsky from CET; Dr. Klaus Gessner from GSWA ;and  Dr. Laurent Ailleres (Monash).
