Big Issues and Ideas in Geoscience

Big Issues and Ideas in Geoscience will highlight the fundamental role that Geoscience has as a major field of science throughout the Asia Pacific Region. The Convention (AGCC 2018) will be the largest Geoscience event to be held in Australasia since 2012.

AGCC 2018 is supported by all eight Member Organisations of the Australian Geoscience Council, and is proudly sponsored by Geoscience Australia, as Patron Sponsor, and Santos as Major Sponsor.

Speaker Spotlight

Professor Matthew Huber – Purdue University

The Australian Geoscience Council Convention, AGCC 2018, is proud to announce Professor Matthew Huber from the Department of Earth, Atmospheric, and Planetary Sciences at Purdue University, Indiana, USA, as Plenary Speaker for this year’s Convention.

Professor Huber heads the Climate Dynamics Prediction Laboratory at Purdue University and his research focuses on the Earth’s Climate, spanning the deep geological past, present and future.

“I believe that our understanding of modern and future climate is only as secure as our understanding of past climate. It is risky to predict future global warming without testing climate models in the past. I find unsettling the fact that the warm climates that dominated the past 90 million years are poorly understood” said Professor Huber.
