The origin and evolution of the deep lithosphere beneath continental arcs: constraints from lower crustal and mantle xenoliths from the Sierra Nevada, California
Lower crustal and upper mantle xenoliths from the Sierra Nevada continental arc in California, USA reveal a complex P-T-X-t (pressure-temperature-composition-time) evolution of the deep lithosphere. Metasedimentary ...
Overpressure and Earthquake Initiated Slope Failure in the Ursa Region, Northern Gulf of Mexico
We use two-dimensional fluid flow and slope stability models to study the evolution of overpressure and slope stability in the Ursa region, northern Gulf of Mexico. Our model predictions match measured overpressures from ...
Diachronous behavior of the Antarctic ice sheets: Weddell Sea, Antarctica
Inaccessibility due to harsh weather conditions and perennial sea ice has left the Weddell Sea embayment (WSE) vastly under-studied in comparison to other regions of Antarctica. Yet understanding its deglacial history since ...
Response of the Texas coast to global change: Geologic versus historic timescales
The response of coastal systems to global change is currently not well understood. To understand current patterns and predict future trends, we establish a geologic record of coastal change along the Gulf of Mexico coast. A ...
