Abstract:

The long-term goal of our research group is to construct mathematical descriptions of the processes that form sedimentary deposits at all spatial scales on continental margins, from storm beds to the deposits of 100,000 yr sea level cycles, and to conduct numerical experiments leading to the prediction of the sedimentary fabric structure and stratification pattern of the resulting deposits.
