Crystal Dissolution Kinetics: Linking Surface Processes at the Solid-Solution Interface over Multiple Length-Scales
This thesis presents a multiple-scale experimental study of mineral dissolution kinetics, utilizing direct measurement of crystal surface morphology in great detail to determine rates and mechanisms acting at the reactive ...
Oblique collision and accretion of the Netherlands Leeward Antilles island arc: A structural analysis of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary zone
The Netherlands Leeward Antilles volcanic island arc is an ideal natural laboratory to study the evolution of the Caribbean-South American plate boundary. The Leeward Antilles islands (Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire) are ...
Late Quaternary sediment accumulations and foraminiferal populations on the slopes of Gladden Basin (offshore Belize) and southern Ashmore Trough (Gulf of Papua) mixed siliciclastic-carbonate systems
The Belize margin, in the western Caribbean Sea, and Ashmore Trough, in the western Gulf of Papua, represent modern tropical mixed siliciclastic-carbonate depositional systems where significant masses of both river born ...
Late Quaternary sediment dispersal and accumulation on slopes of the Great Barrier Reef mixed siliciclastic-carbonate depositional system, Gulf of Papua, Papua New Guinea and North Queensland Margin, Australia
The Great Barrier Reef (GBR) margin, located on the continental margin between Papua New Guinea and northeast Australia, is the largest extant example of a tropical mixed siliciclastic-carbonate depositional system. It is ...
Fluvial response to base level change: A case study of the Brazos River, east Texas, United States
A study of the Holocene avulsion history of the Brazos alluvial valley revealed that two processes, aggradation and valley tilting, were responsible for generating two styles of avulsion, avulsion-by-progradation and ...
