Reconstructing The Morphotectonic Evolution Of Rifted Continental Margins From Low-Temperature Thermochronology

Grant number: DP0665127

Abstract

Knowledge of how continental rifting occurs will improve our ability to predict the locations of important oil and gas resources on the margins of Australia and elsewhere, which is directly relevant to the National Research Priority goal of 'Developing Deep Earth Resources'. The project will enhance our national scientific standing by developing and maintaining key expertise and facilities that can sustain a world-leading research capability in Australia. The project will also forge strong international links with researchers outside Australia, build our research profile in an area of significant worldwide scientific interest at the present time, and provide a training ground for a new gener..
