Abstract:

The ultimate objective of this research program is to obtain a predictive understanding of the physical and biological processes responsible for the formation, alteration and preservation of marine sedimentary deposits. While present focus is on the biological alteration of sedimentary event layers, the physical processes leading to the deposition and erosion of marine sediment remains an area of interest. The general approach of this research program is the development and testing of theory mainly through field observations and measurements.
