Five-day road trip to Canberra and the Geoscience Australia

Jonathan, Renjie, and Hui drove to Canberra last week to visit the Geoscience Australia. Dr. Hui LUO, a professor at the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Paleontology, was in the University of Queensland for a short visit. They drove through the New England Orogen, the Sydney basin, and the Lachlan Orogen, and took a few detours to look at outcrops of grabbros, pillow basalts, and radiolarites. At the GA, they examined the rock collections from the Cambrian strata along the northern coast of Australia and took samples for future micropaleontological studies.
