Discovery where the ocean begins


Coastal and shallow marine settings, situated where the ocean meets the land, are some of Earth's most dynamic environments.  In the Coastal and Marine Geology Lab we investigate the flux and fate of sediment in marine environments from salt marshes, to river mouths, beaches, and out to the shelf break.  Through this work we seek to better understand the impact coastal processes, episodic events, and human activity have on creating the marine geologic record.
