Our research is focused on studies into processes controlling land- and sea-scape evolution, seismic and sequence stratigraphy, sedimentary basin tectonics, clastic and carbonate sedimentology and environmental change. We have developed novel digital outcrop studies and their application to reservoir modelling.
The group has dedicated state-of-the-art facilities for digital outcrop data collection and analysis (including terrestrial laser scanning) and for the interpretation, modelling and visualisation of 3D seismic data. We also have dedicated facilities for numerical modelling, in addition to central University HPC facilities.
The group runs several major industrial consortia including the rifts Analogues project (TRAP) and the North Africa Research Group (NARG)
