Brief description This proposal is directly concerned with the continuing aim of building a sustainable Australia through knowledge of deep earth resources. Uranium series isotopes are relevant to the very recent history of the planet (< 350 000 years) - time scales which are often over-looked. The more we know about the rates of processes the better we will be able to inform models for volcanic hazard mitigation, soil sustainability and resource exploration and safeguarding. It is to these techniques we must look if we are to understand the immediate past as a clue to the immediate future of our planet.
