all around ideas & education on Radio Adelaide
If you look at a map of South Australia it all looks very dry, with one major river system the Murray Darling. However if you think and observe geologically you become aware of Ceduna and the Ceduna delta, where a major river system entered the seas to the south. That was millions of years ago. Studying that delta and the rivers that formed it has given scientists at the University of Adelaide some hints about history and also about the possibility of oil and gas resources. Dr. Simon Holford, lecturer in Petroleum Geoscience and Deputy Director of the Centre for Tectonics, Resources and Exploration (TRaX) is giving Ewart Shaw an insight into the research process.
