Welcome to Quantitative Sedimentology Laboratories

Welcome to QSL. Herein you will find freely available information about our program as well as password-protected files. For access to password protected file and data please e-mail us. Access to this website is fully supported by Google Chrome.


Our mission is to turn out high quality, competitive professionals, with excellent problem solving skills and demonstration of solid communication abilities through presentations at professional society meetings and peer reviewed papers.

The QSL research program is founded on the fundamentals of sedimentology, fieldwork, facies analysis, and sequence stratigraphy at both production and exploration (regional) scale. I am also working on research that investigates the relationship between stratigraphy and structure as a paired process-response.

Much of our work is sponsored by industry and is directly applicable to production and exploration problems. In addition to the applied focus, I believe that it is essential that research projects have fundamental scientific value and we place a high emphasis on producing results that are publishable in the top peer-reviewed publications.
