The mission of the Quantitative Sedimentology Research Consortium is to turn out high quality, competitive professionals, with excellent problem solving skills and demonstration of solid communication abilities through presentations at professional society meetings and peer reviewed papers.
The research program is founded on the fundamentals of sedimentology, fieldwork, facies analysis, and sequence stratigraphy at both production and exploration (regional) scale. I am also working on research that investigates the relationship between stratigraphy and structure as a paired process-response.
Much of the consortium's work is sponsored by industry and is directly applicable to production and exploration problems. In addition to the applied focus, the consortium believes that it is essential that research projects have fundamental scientific value and that a high emphasis is placed on producing results that are publishable in the top peer-reviewed publications.
