The rise of algae in Cryogenian oceans and the emergence of animals

18 July 2018

The transition from bacterial to complex eukaryotic oceans was one of the most profound revolutions in our planet's history. Dr Jochen Brocks will present results from a recent Nature paper demonstrating that algae conquered the oceans between two Snowball Earth glaciations 659 Myrs ago, and this event was responsible for the emergence of our earliest animal ancestors.

Airborne electromagnetics at an unprecedented scale

11 July 2018

The talk outlines the airborne electromagnetic technique, the underlying challenges in acquiring quality calibrated data and reliable modelling and inversion results. We will demonstrate how Geoscience Australia is using the technique to map cover thickness at unprecedented scales.
