First published: Print ISBN: About this book Investigating the complex interplay between tectonics and sedimentation is a key endeavor in modern earth science. Many of the world's leading researchers in this field have been brought together in this volume to provide concise overviews of the current state of the subject. She mainly works on upper crustal rocks, combining stratigraphy, structural geology, geochronology, geochemistry and paleomagnetics to solve tectonic problems.
Her papers also include process-oriented studies in submarine and subaaerial volcanism, clastic depositional systems, and economic geology.
Her research support has come from geothermal and gold exploration industries, as well as the petroleum industry, the U. Geological Survey, and the National Science Foundation.
