Basin Analysis Research Group

The LaMaskin Lab

...Sedimenation, Stratigraphy, Tectonics, Time...

Department of Geography and Geology

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


(1) Using sedimentary provenance and geochronology to understand the evolution of plate-margin arc-basin systems, and


(2)   Using stable carbon and oxygen isotope stratigraphy to (A) establish isochronous surfaces for global stratigraphic intervals, and (B) better understand oceanic anoxic events.
