Excursion
EXCURSION TO ADELAIDE BEACHES

29th May 2022 at 10.00 am

On this excursion we will look at some features of Adelaide’s beaches, from Marino in the south to Semaphore in the north. We all like sandy beaches, and we will discuss the success of the Government’s procedures to compensate for the prevailing longshore drift of sand from the southern beaches to the northern ones. We will also look at some of the rock types that have been used in constructions and statues along the coast.

Lecture
The amazing story of the Adelaide Superbasin

Date: 2/6/22     Time: 7:45 pm

     The Adelaide Superbasin is, scenically and geologically, a stunning rock system! Prof. Collins will discuss its extent and the reasons for defining it, and how it relates to older and perhaps more familiar terms such as “Adelaide Geosyncline”, “Adelaide Fold Belt” and “Adelaide Rift Complex”. He will also talk about the planet’s evolution, the rise of algae, the formation of the Pacific Ocean and the destruction of a supercontinent. Evidence for all this is preserved in the rocks of the Adelaide Superbasin.
