Development of New and High Precision Noble Gas Techniques for Dating Quaternary Volcanic Rocks and Surfaces: A TANG3O initiative
Grant number: DP130100517 | Funding period: 2013 - 2016
This project will calibrate noble gas dating methods, providing powerful tools for dating young volcanic rocks, eroded or buried surfaces and glacier/ice retreat. This research has considerable social, national and economic benefits for research training, volcanic hazard assessment, landscape evolution, paleoclimate change and mineral exploration.
