Overview:

Sedimentary Geology and Paleobiology supports innovative research that addresses the deep-time sedimentary crust and advances our understanding of environmental and evolutionary change. The program seeks to fund projects that focus on:

  • the changing aspects of life, ecology, environments, and biogeography in geologic time based on fossil organisms and/or sedimentological data;
  • all aspects of the Earth's sedimentary lithosphere -- insights into the geological processes and rich organic and inorganic resources locked in rock sequences;
  • the science of dating and measuring the sequence of events and rates of geological processes as manifested in Earth's deep-time (pre-Holocene) sedimentary and biological (fossil) record; and (4) the geologic record of the production, transportation, and deposition of modern and ancient physical and chemical sediments.
