Our Research

The Basin Studies and Petroleum Geoscience group are world leaders in the use of LiDAR data and quantitative geology in the Earth Sciences. Our research includes applications of terrestrial laser scanning to sedimentology, structural geology, palaeontology, landslip monitoring and teaching. We have developed our own software in-house to help interpret and analyse outcrop data.

We also have our own 3D visualisation facility within the research group.
