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 will be 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 have selected 17 scientific talks for the day, covering topics including coal geology and coal quality, geophysics, geotech, coal seam gas, geochronology, and groundwater.
Dinner – Guest Speaker
We are pleased to announce that Marianne Harvey will be our guest speaker at the symposium dinner. Marianne will present on her 2016 Antarctica voyage as a part of the inaugural Homeward Bound program for women in STEMM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine). Please refer to symposium information flyer for further information and a biography.
A bus will be available for transport to/from Dalwood Estate on the symposium dinner evening, for a cost of $16.50 per person.
The return bus will depart from Singleton (with a stop in Branxton), and will deliver you safely back to Singleton at the conclusion of the symposium dinner.
Bus stop locations and times are indicated in the updated promotional flyer (page 3). Times are to be confirmed. The bus will be stopping at designated locations only.
