New app for the journal Sedimentology

Written by Kathryn Amos on . Posted in Uncategorized

The International Association of Sedimentologists (IAS) have launched a new app for the journal Sedimentology, available free for iphones and ipads. If you're a subscriber, you can now read the journal via the app - you can link the app to an institutional subscription as well as a personal one. Lets hope they're working on bringing one out for android soon too!Capture2

Love this recent ‘President’s comments’ from SEPM’s ‘The Sedimentary Record’ on diversity

Worth a read, and thinking about what we can all do to increase diversity when nominating deserving people for professional society awards.Capture

Lecturer in Physical Geography (incl Earth Surface Processes), Uni Melbourne

Written by Kathryn Amos on . Posted in Uncategorized

School of Geography Faculty of Science Salary: $92,654 - $110,022 p.a. plus 17% superannuation Employment Type: Full-time (continuing) The Faculty of Science seeks applications for a teaching and research position in its newly established School of Geography. We require candidates with internationally recognised research records and an excellent track record of teaching, relative to opportunity. The scholarship of successful applicants will fit well with one (or more) of the existing physical geography research strengths of the School: biogeography and palaeoenvironments and earth surface processes. Environmental change is a cross-cutting theme across our research strengths and is analysed with reference to both social and natural sciences. The appointee is expected to lead a research program of exceptional promise that will attract postgraduate students, engage international collaborators and secure external research funding from national competitive research schemes, as well as potential industry partners. The appointee will have a core commitment to research, and will also teach within the School's undergraduate and MSc programs, and supervise research students at undergraduate, MSc and MPhil/PhD levels.

Favourite sedimentology movies?

Written by Kathryn Amos on . Posted in Uncategorized

Hi everyone, sorry its been quiet here lately. I distracted myself from some marking today by wondering what my favourite sedimentology movie that I use for teaching would be. I came up with two, and thought I'd share them with you, along with a request for you to share your top online sedi movies here too. I'd love to see them! This is my favourite one, and never fails to entertain my students. I expect they're entertained equally by this movie and my enthusiasm for it. Make sure you've got the sound on (loud is good, if you're into dubstep!).




This one is great for teaching, make sure you check out the still photos of the deposits at the end.



OK, over to you!

Upcoming AAPG Student-Industry Fieldtrip: Hawkesbury Sandstone

Written by Kathryn Amos on . Posted in Uncategorized

The AAPG Student Chapter at the University of Adelaide would like to extend an invitation to our annual AAPG Student-Industry Field Trip, to be held on November 16-18, 2012: “Depositional environments of the Hawkesbury Sandstone and associated Permo-Triassic strata in the Sydney Basin” This year’s field trip, investigating the depositional environments and sequence stratigraphic framework of the Permo-Triassic strata of the Sydney Basin, will be led by Professor Peter McCabe (Queensland University of Technology). The primary focus will be the Triassic Hawkesbury Sandstone, which is spectacularly exposed in coastal outcrops south of Sydney. Classically interpreted as the deposit of a large sandy braided river, the Hawkesbury has recently been reinterpreted as deposited in a tide-dominated setting. Participants will be encouraged to examine the outcrops to formulate their own interpretations. Underlying Permo-Triassic strata will be examined and the evolution of the Sydney Basin discussed. This fieldtrip provides an excellent opportunity for those wishing to learn more about sedimentary structures, sequence stratigraphic concepts, and sandstone geometries on a reservoir scale. A major objective of the field trip is to provide the petroleum geology students at Adelaide University with an opportunity to network with industry professionals from across Australia while learning new concepts in the field. For further information and payment details, refer to this attached document. Keep in mind that industry places are limited; please contact us ASAP (details in attachment) if you are interested in attending, and feel free to circulate to any interested colleagues.

Sedimentology at the 34th International Geological Congress

Written by Kathryn Amos on . Posted in Uncategorized

The 34th IGC takes place in Brisbane this week, with a wide range of themes that will be of interest to sedimentologists. Key themes for sedimentologists are Theme 13 ‘Sedimentation and Sedimentary Processes’ and Theme 24 ‘Reefs and Carbonates’.

Symposia within these themes include: 13.1 Continental depositional systems; 13.2 Deposits of coastal and shallow marine systems; 13.3 Deepwater sedimentation; 13.4 Depositional controls on reservoirs; 13.5 Applied ichnology; 13.6 Sedimentation in icehouse versus greenhouse epochs; 13.7 Modelling sedimentary systems; 13.8 Global controls on sediment accumulation; 13.9 River-dominated shelf sediments in Asian seas; 24.1 Reefs and Carbonates – secular changes including climate; 24.2 Ancient reefs; 24.3 Understanding microbial carbonates.

Other themes of interest include: Theme 3. Climate Change: Lessons from the Past; Implications for the Future; Theme 4. Environmental Geoscience; Theme 6. Energy in a Carbon-constrained World; Theme 10. Coal - a Myriad of Resources; Theme 11. Petroleum Systems and Exploration; Theme 12. Unconventional Hydrocarbons – Emerging Fuels; Theme 14. Basin Formation and Continental Margin Processes; Theme 18. The Proterozoic Earth; Theme 19. Geochronology and Isotope Geology; Theme 23. Evolution of the Biosphere; Theme 25. Marine Geoscience and Oceanography; Theme 29. Surficial Processes and Landscape Evolution.

The International Association of Sedimentology (IAS) will be present at the – visit them at booth #192.

The Geological Society of Australia’s Sedimentology Special Interest Group will be holding an informal meeting on Monday 7th August at 19.00h in room M2. I’ll be there, and am hoping members attending the IGC will come along to say hello and discuss what we’d like from our group.

An unfortunate clash of the timetable sees this meeting scheduled for the same time as a meeting of the International Association of Sedimentology. I’m aiming to keep the GSA Sedimentology group meeting brief, so that anyone wishing to move on to the IAS meeting afterwards can do so.

All IAS members attending the 34IGC are invited to an IAS Business Meeting on Tuesday 7th August in room P7 from 19.00 to 21.00 h to discuss with Secretary General Vincenzo Pascucci, Treasurer Marc De Batist and PR Officer Patric Jacobs new ideas about sedimentology and ways to promote and structure IAS in South-East Asia and Oceania.

It looks like this should be a great congress; it will be a busy week!
