Sedimentary Geology at NAU

The NAU Sedimentary Geology research group seeks to better understand tectonic and landscape processes as they are recorded in terrestrial and marine basins. We work at the interface between sedimentary geology, geomorphology, and geochronology. We’re focused on the terrestrial stratigraphy of the North American Cordillera and the effects of bedrock lithology on modern and ancient sedimentary processes across a variety of environments.
