Brief description This proposal is to establish a geochemical facility with an innovative, world-leading micro-analytical capability to address fundamental and strategic problems at the frontiers of the Earth and Environmental Sciences. The facility will allow powerful new insight into the age, composition, thermal history and structure of the Australian continent, as necessary for delineating mineral endowment and for tracing the sources of ore metals. It will provide a higher resolution record of climate and environmental change and thus better inform assessment of the impacts, both locally and regionally. The facility will amplify national and international scientific collaboration and create unique research opportunities for Australian-based scientists.
Funding Amount $860,000
