Abstract:

My long-term goal within the STRATAFORM program is to increase our understanding of the processes controlling the formation, reworking and preservation of event-scale stratigraphy on the continental shelf. My goal in the last phase of STRATAFORM is to extend our capability for modeling shelf sediment transport to time scales appropriate for models of the geologic evolution of continental margins e.g., SEDFLUX and SEQUENCE.
