Organisation or Individual Expertise:
John is Director of iCRAG, the Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences, and Co-Director of the Fault Analysis Group in the UCD School of Geological Sciences. iCRAG, a newly formed SFI research centre which is jointly funded by SFI and industry, performs applied geoscience research in Ireland within a broad range of application areas, including the groundwater, hydrocarbon, marine and raw materials industries. The Centre brings together Ireland's leading geoscience experts focussing on a range of issues all of which underpin economic development - from safe and secure groundwater supplies through to the discovery of mineral/aggregate deposits, and from the de-risking of oil and gas exploration to ensuring that the Irish public is educated and informed on these issues. John co-founded the Fault Analysis Group in 1985 within the University of Liverpool and oversaw its relocation to UCD in 2000. The group conducts basic research on faults and fractures and applies its research results to practical problems within the groundwater, hydrocarbon and minerals industries. They have published more than 120 articles in leading international journals and are one of the most cited structural geology research groups in the world. Groundwater-related research performed within the group involves the quantitative analysis of the impact of faults and fractures on groundwater flow, which concentrates on establishing the main fault/fracture systems developed within different rocks around Ireland and on defining links between quantitative attributes of these systems and flow response. Their raw materials research involves the analysis of Irish Zn-Pb deposits, with particular emphasis on the structural controls of mineralisation.
