Chile

We analyzed Earth surface processes across a broad range of climate zones and geomorphic characteristics over the past 26,000 years. The goal of this project is to decipher the controls on offshore turbidite deposition and to evaluate the use of turbidite depositional archives as proxies for climate change and past earthquake activity.
