Australian Geoscience Council Inc.
The Australian Geoscience Council and the Australian Academy of Science take pleasure in announcing the recipients of the 2018 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.
Field visit to the Isle of Skye to map and sample sediments and intrusive igneous rocks as a means to better understand the influence of intrusives on North West Shelf petroleum systems + visit to University of Aberdeen to measure the impact of intrusion proximity on the properties of the sediment samples collected.
Visit to Colorado School of Mines to assist in the development of software for regional-scale, spherical Earth gravity and magnetic modelling, a new tool for application to Australian mineral provinces.
Visit to Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany, to study the influence of Earth and atmospheric tides on pore pressure responses to various natural and induced forces in groundwater systems + International Association of Hydrogeologists congress in Spain.
Visits to the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory, SCRIPPS Institute of Oceanography and the United States Geological Survey to progress development of 3D magnetotelluric modelling software for application to onshore-offshore studies of the Australian lithosphere + Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union.
Visit to the state-of-the-art Microanalysis Centre at the California Institute of Technology for oxygen isotope measurements of mineralised igneous systems in Papua New Guinea to assess the influence of slab tearing on the formation of some of the world’s largest porphyry Cu deposits + Fall Meeting of the American Geophysical Union.
