Abstract

Elliot Foley studied the stratigraphy and tectonics of the northern Great Australian Superbasin. He discovered the sources of the basin fill and resolved the Jurassic-Cretaceous tectonic setting of eastern Australia. His results have significant implications for the modelling and correlation of vital groundwater aquifers and potential carbon sequestration reservoirs across eastern Australia.
