Sediment by ice and water in the Sturt Gorge Precinct

Date:  Sunday 29th September 2019

Leader:  Peter Briggs 

At Sturt Gorge we go back in time, 720 to 663 million years to look at a world wide glaciation event, the Sturtian Glaciation, where we will see distinct evidence of glacial deposits in the 250m thick Sturt Tillite.

Hot rocks, ice sheets and melted crust

Date:  Thursday 3rd of October 2019 at 7.45pm.

Speaker: Tom Raimondo, University of South Australia

Australia is not only a sunburnt country but also home to some of the hottest rocks on earth. This talk will explore some of the local and global impacts of Australia's subterranean heat engine.
