Dr. Charles Ver Straeten
Curator of Sedimentary Rocks
My focus is on Devonian Period Sedimentation and Stratigraphy, including sea level history, mountain building and sedimentation, paleoecology, and Devonian volcanic ash layers. In addition, I also study the deposition and preservation of volcanic ash layers in shallow seas and lakes through time.
