Brief description We propose to set up a South Australian Thermochronology Hub which will complement existing Australian geo- and thermochronological facilities by focussing on zircon fission track dating. This method enables (1) characterization of the evolution of Australia�s landscape, (2) uncovering of its mineral deposits and (3) constraining the formation of its petroleum reservoirs. The proposed facility will thus enhance capacity to undertake thermochronological research and aid in securing the economic future of Australia.
