Time-averaging in tropical assemblages

description:

This project focuses on a critical underlying assumption in my historical paleoecological research — how much time is recorded in these sediments?
These results are pushing forward our understanding of time-averaging, sediment mixing, and stratigraphic order in tropical molluscan assemblages. While it exists to enable research on "bigger" questions, this project is discovering and documenting some very interesting and important patterns influencing how we understand fossil assemblages.
In 2005 & 2006 I was awarded AINSE grants (#05/098 & #06/100) to quantify the amount of time recorded in the large diameter core layers.
