Tenure-Track Faculty Position in Atmospheric Sciences



This workshop will be presented as a hybrid event, In-Person in Sydney, Australia and Online.

Do you want to delve into recent breakthroughs in tectonic and structural geoscience technology? How about discuss the technical developments and disseminate your latest work, in an open forum of your peers? And then to cross pollinate with colleagues who have learnt in different settings like rare earth or base metal mining, hard rock geology, geothermal, or hydrogeology. As we transition to a new commercial reality for our industries, there has never been a more important time for Earth Scientists to take a seat at the table. This workshop is designed to share our knowledge but also covey our structural geology learnings in the petroleum sector to other branches of the geosciences, while learning from their experiences. 

In the petroleum industry, structural geology can sometimes be overlooked, yet forms an essential part of holistic Earth Science understanding. It provides the framework for sedimentation, formation of igneous rocks, deformation into metamorphic rocks and the formation of many of the resources we extract.

There are still many disagreements, uncertainties, and gaps in our knowledge regarding the impacts of tectonic stresses and resulting structural faulting, fracturing and deformation. Recent advances in our understanding of macro and micro tectonism have been led by rapid advances in technology, new data, advanced computer modelling, as well as a fresh look at old data and previous work. There is also an increasing need to share advances regarding the practice and application of techniques refined in the petroleum industry with other geoscience sectors. Conversely, petroleum scientists need to learn from structural geology challenges faced by the mining, sequestration, and geothermal sectors.

This workshop aims to share, discuss, and explore many of the latest developments in structure and tectonic geoscience. The workshop also will provide a virtual platform for discussion and knowledge sharing, bringing workers and scholars from different backgrounds together. This is a chance to bring together the best and latest developments in structural and tectonic Earth Science, argue with your peers and get instant feedback on your ideas, while taking a front row seat in energy transition.


Stratigraphic and Reservoir Challenges with Triassic Plays in North Europe - Call for Abstracts Ends on 22 December, 2021
