Undergraduate Research

Current research in the LaMaskin lab falls into two broad categories:

 

(1) Using sedimentary provenance to understand the evolution of plate margins and continental sediment dispersal systems, and

 

(2) Using stable isotope stratigraphy to establish a chronostratigraphic signature for the Late Triassic, Carnian-Norian Boundary Interval
