Theme 2: Models of regolith-landscape evolution
Regolith-landscape models provide the starting point for 3D regolith
models, which are required for both MINEX and NRM applications.
Tectonism, eustasy and climate change all affect landscape evolution.
Together with regolith structure, regolith depth and age-dating
of events, regolith-landscape evolution models describe the relationship
between episodes in landscape evolution, deep weathering and sedimentary
dispersion and how these may relate to past and present mobility
of salt and metals. Regolith-landscape evolution models provide
a critical link between NRM and MINEX applications.
