Marine Geoscience researches the history and structure of the ocean floor. It is a broad research theme incorporating disciplines such as sedimentology, basin analysis, geophysics, oceanography, and benthic habitat mapping. A detailed understanding of the structure of the seabed and sub-seabed enables our research to focus on a diverse range of activities ranging from energy security, geohazards, the evolution of the Great Barrier Reef, and the responses of benthic habitats to climate change and anthropogenic influences.
