United granites of Victoria
The granites of Victoria are famous for past research on their petrology and geochemistry, which contributed to defining the I- and S-classification. Despite this, much less is known about the 3D geometry of individual intrusions, their emplacement mechanisms and how they relate to the different tectonic phases of the Lachlan fold belt. Several projects are available to “take apart” selected granite plutons in Victoria using a variety of structural and geophysical techniques, including measurements of anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility (AMS), gravity surveys and modelling, interpretation of aeromagnetic data, and structural analysis of pluton-wall rock relationships.
