Clastics

Ritchie Distinguished Professor Michael Blum, Associate Scientist Diane Kamola and Associate Professor Anthony Walton highlight KU's clastics faculty with other KU faculty like Merrill Haas Distinguished Professor Bob Goldstein and Professor Stephen Hasiotis adding their expertise to KU's clastics work.

Dr. Blum's research focuses on fluvial and coastal sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy of continental and shallow-marine successions, global to regional sea-level change, geologic responses to global change, and source-to-sink sediment dispersal in the stratigraphic record.

Dr. Kamola's research interests are sequence stratigraphy and sedimentary basin analysis with her current work focusing on controls on stratal patterns in sedimentary basins and high frequency sequence stratigraphy of shallow marine strata.

Dr. Walton's research focuses on siliciclastic and volcaniclastic rocks.
