About this book

Terrestrial Depositional Systems: Deciphering Complexities through Multiple Stratigraphic Methods is the first collection of contributed articles that not only introduces young geoscientists to biostratigraphy, chemostratigraphy, magnetostratigraphy, and lithostratigraphy, but also provides seasoned practitioners with a standard reference that showcases the topic's most recent developments in research and application. When studying complex depositional systems, scientists often need to rely on more than one stratigraphic technique to truly understand the sequence of historical events. Through a blend of specific analytical techniques, experiments, sampling methods, and working examples, this book provides a practical reference for addressing a range of depositional system challenges. This multi-contributed reference combines reviews of stratigraphic methods with individual case studies, providing readers with a broad scope of techniques that will aid their work in the interpretation and understanding of complex depositional systems.

Biography

Kate Zeigler is the owner of Zeigler Geologic Consulting, LLC, a woman-owned small business specializing in geoscience consulting. She obtained her B.A. from Rice University in geology and anthropology in 1999. Her M.S. was granted by the University of New Mexico in 2002 and her thesis topic was taphonomy and vertebrate paleontology of an Upper Triassic bonebed. Her Ph.D. was awarded by UNM in 2008 and her dissertation focused on the magnetostratigraphy of the Upper Triassic Chinle Formation. Kate now works to apply stratigraphic data sets to aquifer mapping and groundwater resource management projects in rural agricultural communities.

William Parker has been employed as the lead paleontologist at Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona since 2001, where he established and leads the park's vertebrate paleontology research lab. Since 2002, park staff have published more than 50 papers on the geology and paleontology of the Triassic Period. Dr. Parker has B.S. and M.S. degrees in geology from Northern Arizona University and a Ph.D. in geology from the University of Texas at Austin. He is considered an expert in the study of Triassic archosaurian reptiles and on the geology and stratigraphy of the Upper Triassic Chinle Formation of Arizona.
