Geoscientist’s research hits the mark

Dr Carmine Wainman from the Australian School of Petroleum and Energy Resources has received two major recognitions for his research.

The first is Carmine’s publication investigating the frontier Mentelle Basin in collaboration with the International Ocean Discovery Programme (IODP).

The article was selected as one of the most read and most cited of 2020 for the Australian Journal of Earth Sciences. His research offers the first detailed glimpse into the geology below seafloor offshore of southwestern Australia, a region that was once attached to Greater India 170 million years ago. 

The second is his recent review article investigating techniques on how best to best understand the evolution and character of ancient river systems through geologic time. Published in Marine and Petroleum Geology, the publication was the third most downloaded article between December 2020 and February 2021.

His work will have major implication on predicting locations to capture and sequester carbon dioxide emissions.
