Dr Jody Webster is part of the Geocoastal Research Group in the School of Geosciences at Sydney University. His research group – the GeoReef Lab – is focused on carbonate sedimentology, sea level, climate change and tectonics. This work takes the group to all the beautiful places in the world, including the Great Barrier Reef, Tahiti, Hawaii, Seychelles and Papua New Guinea.
The group is particularly interested in coral reef and carbonate platform systems, both modern and ancient, and their associated sedimentary systems as tools to address fundamental questions in paleoclimate variability and tectonics, and in turn the influence of these factors on the geometry, composition and evolution of these systems.
