Geocoastal & Geology

Geocoastal Research Group

The Geocoastal Research Group is integrated with the University’s wider marine science community via the Marine Studies Institute . Spanning the coastal sedimentary continuum from river systems to the edge of continental margins and beyond, and encompassing both clastic and carbonate environments, this field of research is focused on the coupling between flow dynamics and geomorphic evolution enacted by sediment transport.


EarthByte is an internationally leading eGeoscience collaboration between several Australian Universities, international centres of excellence and industry partners. One of the fundamental aims of the EarthByte Group is geodata synthesis through space and time, assimilating the wealth of disparate geological and geophysical data into a four-dimensional Earth model including tectonics, geodynamics and surface processes.
