Marine geoscience

Marine Geoscience studies the interaction between plate tectonics, the evolution of marine and coastal environments, oceanographic forces and climate.

We use cutting edge geochemical techniques and radiometric dating as well as remote sensing and GIS analysis, wave and current measurement, and computer modeling to interpret past and current changes in ocean and coastal systems to make predictions about the future of our marine environment.

Our researchers have conducted ocean going research as part of the Australia New Zealand Integrated Ocean Discovery program Consortium (ANZIC) and using specially commissioned ships such as the RV Dorothy Hill.
