Sci.Adv.: The exceptional sediment load of fine-grained dispersal systems: Example of the Yellow River, China

Hongbo Ma, Jeffrey A. Nittrouer, Kensuke Naito, Xudong Fu, Yuanfeng Zhang, Andrew J. Moodie, Yuanjian Wang, Baosheng Wu and Gary Parker http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/3/5/e1603114 Sedimentary dispersal systems with fine-grained beds are common, yet the physics of sediment movement within them remains poorly constrained. We analyze sediment transport data for the best-documented, fine-grained river worldwide, the Huanghe (Yellow River) of China, where sediment flux is underpredicted […]

JGR-ES: Morphodynamic modeling of fluvial channel fill and avulsion time scales during early Holocene transgression, as substantiated by the incised valley stratigraphy of the Trinity River, Texas

Kaitlin E. Moran , Jeffrey A. Nittrouer, Mauricio M. Perillo, Jorge Lorenzo-Trueba, and John B. Anderson Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface (2016) doi:10.1002/2015JF003778 The Trinity River system provides a natural laboratory for linking fluvial morphodynamics to stratigraphy produced by sea-level rise, because the sediments occupying the Trinity incised valley are well constrained in terms […]

ESCI 546 Basin Analysis: Field Trip to Ireland

Overview ESCI 546 “Advance Topic in Basin Sedimentology and Stratigraphy ” participated in a field trip to County Clare, western Ireland, from May 2nd to May 12th, 2016. The class visited sea-cliff exposures of rocks found in the Western Irish Namurian Basin (WINB), which were deposited during the Upper Carboniferous (326 Ma – 317 Ma). The […]
