Log Post: Ice Age Geology of the Great Barrier Reef

What a year 2020 has been. We have all had our lives disrupted in so many ways, and for many the impacts have been far-reaching. Some of us have been very fortunate to be able to continue working – albeit in very different modes and capacities to what we are used to. For most scientists, … Continued
