Continental Evolution Research Group
The Continental Evolution Research Group (CERG) is an organised research group within the Centre for Tectonics, Resources and Exploration (TRaX) and is comprised of members from the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at the University of Adelaide.
CERG is committed to fundamental and applied research in tectonic systems using a broad based integrated approach, and seeks to develop collaborations with national and international researchers and industry partners.
- Fieldwork for 2014 has started - by the end of February CERG members will have visited Antarctica, Ethiopia, New Zealand and Saudi Arabia and the slightly less exotic NSW and Victoria.
- A team led by Prof. Martin Hand were succesful in obtaining LIEF funding for a new Thermal Ionisation Mass Spectrometer. We're aiming for install around September this year. We'll put up some pictures of the new lab and instrument once it's installed and churning out numbers.
A strong CERG contingent at Goldschmidt 2013 - John Foden, Martin Hand, Justin Payne, Chris Wawryk, Jade Anderson, Alec Walsh and Diana Plavsa all presented papers with Martin Hand giving a keynote address.
