Coulomb stress changes following moderate to large earthquakes

Honours projects: Investigate aspects of Coulomb triggering including the benefit of including fault information in Coulomb maps, the circumstances in which these stress changes trigger large events, and the extent to which they can be combined with statistical models to forecast earthquake rates.

Dating the structural evolution of Pichi Richi

Pichi Richi Pass

Honours project: Help solve this missing part of the puzzle in the absolute timing of fault movements and landscape evolution of the southern Flinders Ranges.

Depths of erosion

Rock Type Models within the Crust

This project will develop a model of igneous and sedimentary protoliths and produce a model of heat production variation.

Molecular effects in membrane fluid transport

Huang hydrodynamics

Honours project: Develop a general theoretical understanding of the fluid and membrane parameters that control membrane transport processes and to investigate deviations from continuum hydrodynamics predictions due to molecular effects, which could potentially be harnessed to optimise these processes.

Elevation of subglacial temperatures

Honours project: Develop a model of the compositional and thermal effects on elevation across the Antarctic that may be used by glacial modellers.

Gondwana Heat Production

Honours project: Reconstruct the supercontinent Gondwana using geochemical, geophysical, structural and geochronologic data.
