El Niño and sediment flux to the deep sea
Last week the Dept of Geography here at Virginia Tech invited me to give a talk about some of my research on controls on sedimentary system evolution. A major component of my PhD research (2003-2008) was investigating the influences on sediment delivery from land to the deep sea over the past ~10,000 years. Our ‘natural laboratory’ for this work was the Santa Clara River and offshore Santa Monica Basin, southern California. This work was published in 2009 in GSA Bulletin (link or pdf).
Please note that these slides were designed for a projected screen in a relatively small room; I did not take the time to modify the design to look good on small screens or mobile devices. I also did not take the time to add additional text/annotation related to what I said during the presentation.
