Exploring past climates, volcanic disasters and earthquakes in Australasia

Grant


Scheme


  • Discovery Projects

Abstract


  • Climate change, volcanic disasters, and catastrophic earthquakes alter the course of human history. As Australasia¿s population grows, its stability, prosperity and sustainability will require advanced risk analysis of these big-three earth hazards encompassing the past, present, and future. This project aims to combine cuttingedge geochemical microanalysis of precisely dated cave deposits and corals to generate fundamental knowledge of Australasian earth hazards and environmental turning points over the past 500,000 years. These novel longterm perspectives of society¿s most challenging environmental threats will provide the scientific basis required for informed decision-making and sustainable development in Australasia.
