The Southern Highlands of New South Wales, including the Canberra region, may well have been subaerially exposed for more than 300 million years, but ongoing erosion has removed much of the evidence of this long history of subaerial landscape evolution.

This project will investigate the history of landscape evolution, in the Canberra region, by studying Cenozoic sediments and regolith, including alluvial terrace remnants comprised of quartz-rich gravels, in situ weathering profiles and the unique sedimentary record of Lake George.

Topics are available to suit honours, masters, PhD and Summer Scholars.
