From Crystal To Craton: Unravelling The Low-Temperature Thermal Evolution And Long-Term Stability Of Cratonic Lithosphere

Grant number: DP0556642

Abstract

The project will expand Australia's knowledge base by increasing fundamental scientific knowledge about the evolution of cratons, the old nuclei of the continents. These areas are important for the resources they contain and their potential elsewhere as stable sites for long-term nuclear waste repositories. The project will also enhance our research capability by developing new methods and help to build and sustain world leading research capability in Australia. In addition, the project will forge strong international links with researchers overseas. Whilst not focussed directly on the National Research Priorities the project will nonetheless provide important background information to 'deep..
