Stratigraphy and sedimentology are fundamental to our understanding of Earth history because sedimentary strata form the principal archive of past events, climates and environments. Research in Oxford covers broad aspects of stratigraphy and sedimentology, but in particular focuses on integration of data from a range of biological, physical and geochemical sources.

We work closely with other research groups in Oxford, including Noble Gas, Volcanology and Isotopes and Climate.
