Members of the Basin Dynamics Research Group study sedimentary basins, their controls, fill, and subsequent deformation and inversion. Basin formation and inversion are considered at lithospheric scale using numerical analysis, and at smaller scales using seismic reflection interpretation and structural geological modelling.
Sedimentary basin fill is analysed using classical techniques of stratigraphy, sequence stratigraphy, sedimentology and provenance analysis. Economic implications of sedimentology, stratigraphy and structural geology are modelled using integrated three-dimensional basin modelling approaches coupled with fluid flow models, with a strong emphasis on the geological uncertainties involved and their influence on commercially viable outcomes.
