In 2016, a research paper, co-written by Professor of Geography Patrick Nunn (SRC) and University of New England linguist Associate Professor Nick Reid, explored Aboriginal stories from 21 places around Australia’s coastline, each of which described a time when sea levels were significantly lower than today. Over three years of research, they concluded that as current sea levels in Australia were reached 7,000 years ago, the stories about the coastline stretching much further out to sea had to pre-date that time.
SRC research nationally ranked through ERA as world leaders in their field
SRC received $1.242 m in external research income during 2015, were successful in 16 new projects worth over $2m, and contributed the majority of the USC outputs towards the ERA assessment of 5 (well above world average) in the field of ‘environmental science and management’ (Field of Research code 0502).
