Capturing Australia’s Outback in 3-D: Part 2

Intro: Arguably the most famous landscape of Australia, I got to venture into the heart of the outback “red centre” as part of a geology-photography project (AusGeol). Our journey captures multiple meteor impact craters (!!), the famous Uluru (aka Ayer’s rock), Kata Tjuṯa (aka the Olgas), King’s Canyon and more! This post is Part 2

Intro: An exciting part of being a PhD student is being surrounded by new ideas and technology that pushes forward your field of study. On an undergraduate geology field trip to Freycinet National Park, Tasmania, I was part of a team in conjunction with our new TMVC hub (i.e. ARC Industrial Transformation Research Hub, Transforming
