Papers I’m reading – June 2008

June 24, 2008

It’s been difficult lately to find the time to write detailed (and hopefully good) posts about recent papers in sedimentary geology. I’m going to start a new monthly series where I simply list a few to several papers that I have on my desk and plan to read. Some may be of interest to you … some, not so much. It’s just a list.

These will mostly be of interest to sedimentary geologists, but, since I receive Geology, there will be  some “general interest” papers too. Most of the time, they will be brand new or a couple months old, but I also like digging into the past and reading old papers from time to time.

Okay … so here we go, here’s the list for June 2008:

  • Trofimovs, J., Sparks, R.S.J., and Talling, P.J., 2008, Anatomy of a submarine pyroclastic flow and associated turbidity current: July 2003 dome collapse, Soufriere Hills volcano, Montserrat, West Indies: Sedimentology, v. 55, p. 617-634 [link].


  • Varban, B.L. and Plint, A.G., 2008, Sequence stacking patterns in the Western Canada foredeep: influence of tectonics, sediment loading and eustasy on deposition of the Upper Cretaceous Kaskapau and Cardium Formations: Sedimentology, v. 55, p. 395-421 [link].
  • Aziz, H.A. et al., 2008, Astronomical climate control on paleosol stacking patterns in the upper Paleocene–lower Eocene Willwood Formation, Bighorn Basin, Wyoming: Geology, v. 36, no. 7, p. 531-534 [link].
  • Christoffersen, P., et al., 2008, Large subglacial lake beneath the Laurentide Ice Sheet inferred from sedimentary sequences: Geology, v. 36, no. 7, p. 563-566 [link].
  • Hill, J.C., et al., 2008, Iceberg scours along the southern U.S. Atlantic margin: Geology, v. 36, no. 6, p. 447-450 [link]. NOTE: This one has some great bathymetric images!
  • Michel, J., et al., 2008, Incremental growth of the Patagonian Torres del Paine laccolith over 90 k.y.: Geology, v. 36, no. 6, p. 459-462 [link].


Unfortunately, the links require subscription to get full access … I know that’s a bummer for many, not much I can do about that.

Please feel free to comment below about what you’re reading from the literature or link to your own list.
