29 February 2024 - GSA Tasmania
Details: The GSA Tasmania Division is leaping into 2024 with a talk on Tasmanian Tectonics by Ron Berry.
Ron is a Twelvetrees Medal recipient (2016) for his outstanding contributions to our understanding of the structure and tectonics of Tasmania. His work in the 1970s onwards reimagined Tasmania’s geological evolution and where and how it fits with the rest of Australia.  His work has been seminal to reconstructions of supercontinents in the Mesoproterozoic and Paleozoic. In his talk ‘Tasmania: Speculations on Tectonics’ he will discuss the current models for the formation of Tasmania, both west and east, along with some background on how the models developed.
Location: University of Tamania
Time: 6:00pm

14 March 2024 - GSA Tasmania
Details: We are proud to celebrate the work of our early women geological mappers in the early 1970s. Geological field work was generally the preserve of men. Although women in geology during these times were employed by government organisations and some universities, they were often limited to work in laboratories in fields such as palaeontology and mineralogy. Yet in Tasmania Elzabeth Corbett and Jean McClenaghan were making maps with their husbands Keith Corbett and Marcus McClenahan for the State’s Department of Mines, Geological Survey Regional Mapping section. Please join us for an early afternoon tea to reflect on and recognise the contributions of these pioneering mapping teams.
