Joseph P Smoot

My research uses analysis of sedimentary processes to reconstruct depositional environments at the map scale, outcrops, cores, and thin sections.  The reconstructions are used to develop mapping strategies, climatic reconstructions, exploration of economic minerals or hydrocarbons, or to resolve problems such as pollution, erosion, or hazard analysis.
