6. The rock cycle

Wednesday March 20 @ 4.30pm AEDT. Register here, it's FREE.

The rock cycle is far more complicated than a simple arrow connecting metamorphic, sedimentary and igneous rocks. The rock cycle is part of a large geochemical cycle that includes the sulphur, carbon and water cycles. The rock cycle is the engine of our planet and dovetails with every other cycle, including the atmospheric cycle.

Plate Tectonics Webinar series 6 T1 2024

March 21, 2024 @ 4:30 PM

6. Natural Hazards

Wednesday March 21 @ 4.30pm AEDT. Register here, it's FREE.

Active plate tectonic processes bring with it a number of natural hazards. In the final presentation in this series, we explore the tectonic causes of these hazards, including earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, landslides, and more. By building up our understanding of how plate tectonics cause these hazards we are able to mitigate many of the risks posed by living in tectonically active areas.
