Ongoing & Emerging Research Projects

 

EARLY CENOZOIC PRE-RIFT BASIN DEVELOPMENT IN THE SOUTHWESTERN U.S.

(1) Basin evolution and sediment dispersal during the late stages of the Laramide orogeny (southern New Mexico)

(2) Provenance of Eocene andesitic/volcaniclastic strata (southern New Mexico)

 

PALEOZOIC – MESOZOIC PALEOGEOGRAPHY AND ACCRETIONARY HISTORY OF SOUTHERN ALASKA

(1) Silurian – Permain stratigraphy and paleogeography of the Farewell terrane (Alaska Range)

(2) Late Triassic stratigraphy and paleogeography of the Chulitna terrane (Alaska Range)

(3) Late Jurassic- Cretaceous stratigraphic record of island-arc accretion (Alaska Range and northern Talkeetna Mtns.)
