Developing resistivity imaging as a tool for understanding landscape evolution and sand deposition within the Lake George Basin

Developing an understanding of the geological and landscape evolution within the Lake George Basin (and adjoining basins) is a key to providing a framework for understanding sand deposition processes and assisting resource evaluation and sustainable resource management for the quarry industry established around the lake.

The student will use resistivity method to contribute to the study of the structural, sedimentological and hydrogeological setting of Lake George, where sand and gravel mined to supply the Canberra region's construction industry. He/she will be able to interact with a PhD student on hydrogeology, and with colleagues from GA on the structural setting of the Lake George fault. A publication and a thesis will be expected outcomes.
