Sprigg Geobiology Centre

The Sprigg Geobiology Centre seeks to understand how the interactions between the living and non-living world have shaped the planet since the emergence of the first complex life.

The Sprigg does this with a particular focus on understanding how the interaction between the biosphere and geosphere has left a legacy of both environments themselves and the fossil record used to comprehend that legacy.

The Sprigg aims to document the rate and magnitude of climate and environmental change over a range of timescales; to develop and apply a broad range of techniques for inferring past environment (including conventional and novel isotope approaches, micro and macrofossil analysis, organic and sediment geochemistry); to improve geochronologies using improved techniques, particularly in the fields of optically stimulated luminescence dating and tephrachronology.

  • Research

    The Sprigg Geobiology Centre (SGC) undertakes research at the interface of life and Earth, as well as developing the understanding of how geobiological systems sustain society and can be best managed.

    Please see the below resources for further information on our research.

    Soil erosion is filling vital inland river waterholes, putting the squeeze on fish, turtles and crayfish

    During droughts, Australia’s inland rivers dry up, leaving waterholes as the only wet places in a parched landscape. Fish, turtles, crayfish and other aquatic animals retreat to these vital refuges. But our research, published today, reveals these waterholes are in danger of filling up with eroded soil from farms. This is putting a big squeeze …



    End of year celebration for the Environment Institute

    After a wonderful year of growth, development and success we took the time to reflect on our achievements. Our festive celebration was well attended with a buzz of positivity for this years’ achievements and excitement our future endeavours. See all of the event images from the end of year celebration.

    EVENT: Sprigg Lecture Series with Prof. Bob Hill and Dr. Mika Peace

    The next Sprigg lecture series will be have two engaging speakers who will present their two perspectives on Australia’s relationship with wild fire – the evolution of fire-adapted vegetation, and how complex weather patterns drive fire behaviour in the Australian landscape. Title: Australia’s tempestuous relationship with wild fire – past, present and future When: Tuesday, 12 November …



    7000 years of drought and rainfall found in preserved leaves

    A study by University of Adelaide researchers and Queensland Government scientists has revealed what south-east Queensland’s rainfall was like over the last 7000 years – including several severe droughts worse and longer lasting than the 12-year Millennium Drought. The study – published in Scientific Reports – used preserved paper-bark tea tree leaves from North Stradbroke Island’s Swallow …



    Sprigg Geobiology Centre students make their mark at the Australasian Quaternary Association Biennial Conference

    We’re delighted to announce, students from Sprigg Geobiology Centre were successful at the recent Australasian Quaternary Association (AQUA) biennial conference held in Canberra. Adelaide University was one of the most successful institution at the awards. AQUA was formed in 1987, by a small group of researchers at a conference in Mildura, Victoria, Australia. It aims to …



    World’s earliest predators on display at the South Australian Museum

    One of the world’s leading Cambrian researchers, Associate Professor Diego C.
