Blue Mountains Field Trip

IAEG 60th Anniversary Celebrations

Anthony Bowden and Tim Rannard

Join us as we celebrate the 60th anniversary of the IAEG in Australia. The IAEG Sydney Chapter will be hosting a day-long geological excursion in the Blue Mountains. The excursion will traverse an east-west geological section of the central part of the Sydney Basin, where Permian and Triassic sediments, overlain in part by small, isolated residuals of Tertiary basalt, are exposed in the deep canyons of the Blue Mountains. Recent studies and investigations associated with infrastructure projects have resulted in improvements to our understanding of previously poorly understood aspects of the geology, including the age of the Lapstone Structural Complex, the impact of deep weathering of the Narrabeen Group, regional faulting in the mountains, and the relationship between geology and landslides at Mount Tomah.

Hosted by prominent Engineering Geologists, Tim Rannard and Anthony Bowden, this is an excellent opportunity to develop a deeper appreciation for the complexities of the geology of the Sydney Basin.

This event is co-hosted with the International Association for Engineering Geology and the Environment (IAEG)
