The Sydney Basin Symposium provides a forum for geoscientists to share knowledge and advance our understanding of the major sedimentary basins of Eastern Australia.
The Sydney Basin Symposium was initiated by the University of Newcastle in 1966, as the long-running symposia series ‘Advances in the Study of the Sydney Basin’. This was the 41st symposia in the series, covering topics including (but not limited to) coal geology and coal quality, mine geology, exploration, hydrogeology, petroleum geology, geophysics, environmental and social, state of the industry, and climate change.
We received a range of interesting submissions and selected 17 scientific talks for the day, covering topics including coal geology and coal quality, geophysics, geotech, coal seam gas, geochronology, and groundwater.
