Stratigraphy Group: Clastic sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy

Tanqua Karoo (South Africa)

The fundamental goals of research within this theme are to decipher sedimentary processes, depositional environments and the controls on deposition from sedimentary sequences. We undertake pure and applied interdisciplinary research utilizing several approaches including: traditional and digital field-based studies, experimental and numerical modelling, and interpretation of 3D seismic and well data.

These approaches engender different scaled problems from fluid dynamics of turbidity currents and rivers at the grain-scale, to basin-scale questions, such as understanding mass transport complex mechanics and emplacement, and determining the allocyclic and autocycllic controls on basin margin sequences.
