Event Details

Abo­ut the talk
Australia’s geography and geology have shaped the nation in many ways, through the climate, soils and landscapes, seascapes, water, minerals and energy, as well as the unique flora and fauna of this continent and what the fossil record tells us about the evolution of life and the planet in general.  Join Richard Blewett in exploring the challenges and opportunities presented by Australia’s rich geological heritage.

About the speaker

He returned to Australia in 1990 to join Geoscience Australia, where he is presently the Group Leader of Regional Geology and Mineral Systems in the Minerals and Natural Hazards Division. Richard was Chief Editor of Shaping a Nation: A geology of Australia which was published to celebrate Australia as the host nation of the 34th International Geological Congress held in Brisbane in late 2012.
