Tackling the Challenge of an Imperfect Stratigraphic Record

Climate, tectonics, and life influence the flux and caliber of sediment transported across Earth’s surface. These environmental conditions can leave behind imprints in the Earth’s sedimentary archive, but signals of climate, tectonic, and biologic change are not always present in the stratigraphic record. Dr. Kyle Straub will talk about how emergent and self-organized patterns and processes in landscapes fundamentally control the likelihood of environmental signal preservation in sedimentary deposits.
