Dr. Glenn Sharman is a sedimentary geologist who studies how geologic processes (e.g., tectonism, climate, sea level) interact to influence the stratigraphic development and evolution of sedimentary systems. Dr. Sharman’s research aims to take a holistic view of sedimentary basin evolution by integrating the up-stream, erosional catchment with the down-system sedimentary record. His specific areas of expertise include detrital geochronology and deep-water sedimentology, including processes related to submarine mass-movement. Dr. Sharman’s research employs a combination of field-, subsurface-, and analytical-based approaches, including radiogenic isotopic dating of detrital minerals.
