Sedimentary Geology

This paper explores the links between sedimentary rocks and past environments through two major strands: reconstructing depositional environments and understanding the effects of sea-level change on sedimentary processes (sequence stratigraphy). A third strand explores the environmental and economic aspects of sedimentary geology, in particular for water, energy, and carbon storage. The paper includes an integrated lab-field component, with a three-day field mapping trip to the North Taranaki region.
