Devonian Geology

Roughly forty percent of New York State is underlain by Devonian rocks. Project research ranges across a broad spectrum of geologic problems including sequence stratigraphy, tectonics, and sedimentation, sedimentary basins, high-resolution event and cyclic stratigraphy, and both marine and terrestrial systems. A chief research interest is K-bentonites (ancient volcanic ash layers), and the full range of processes involved in their sedimentology and stratinomic (preservational) history.
