Australian Geoscience Council Inc.
The Australian Geoscience Council and the Australian Academy of Science take pleasure in announcing the recipients of the 2016 round of the 34th IGC Travel Grants listed below and congratulate these talented geoscientists in their outstanding aspirations to advance geoscience knowledge and understanding through their endeavours.
Attend and present at Biennial Meeting of the Society for Geology Applied to Mineral Deposits (SGA) in Quebec City and at the American Association of Petroleum Geologists International Conference and Exhibition in London. Conduct deformation band mapping in the Athabasca Basin and field visit to textbook localities in England.
Attend and present at the FUTORES II Conference in Townsville, attend a Mount Isa focussed special meeting; Fieldwork to identify fluid pathways and develop exploration targeting criteria utilising stable isotopes, along with reactive transport modelling to determine time-integrated fluid fluxes for the system.
Attend and present research at the Deformation Mechanics, Rheology and Tectonics conference in Inverness, Scotland. Undertake state-of-the-art earthquake slip experiments at ENS laboratory in Paris, France
Work with Prof. Silvio Mollo at the Experimental Petrology lab at Sapienza, University of Rome Italy, to collaboratively develop high temperature experiments on the growth and zoning of clinopyroxene crystals. Track pre-eruptive magma histories at mineral scale. Advance understanding of triggers of volcanic eruptions.
Attend the 2017 American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting to be held in New Orleans in December 2017, convene a multi-disciplinary session on arc volcanism to discuss ways to understand the pathways and rates of fluid/melt transport from subducted slabs to arc volcanoes at the surface. Additional travel to John Hopkins University, Baltimore, will be made to develop future research programs and to develop grant applications
