Students will acquire in-depth knowledge of the methods used to study sedimentary successions and the role of subsidence, sea level, sediment production, and climate in the formation of basin-fill stratigraphy. Through the analysis of selected intervals in Earth history, this module examines the feedbacks among various components in the Earth system, emphasizing in particular the interactions among the biosphere, the lithosphere, and the climate system. During weekly labs and a field trip, students will gain practical skills in applying the principles of basin analysis and the processes that control sedimentary history.
