Research Summary:

Understanding uniaxial compressive strength changes in different lithologies is important to understand the changes in behavior of rocks under confinement in the subsurface. While laboratory testing often assesses the strength of a particular lithology, there are few studies such as that by Deere and Miller (1966) that compare a large variety of different lithologies and their overall strength. Here, we present a data compilation of strain at failure under uniaxial compression for various lithologies in order to show how widely strain data can vary in a given lithology and between different lithologies. Metadata for the study were obtained through searching existing literature. We show that the lithology strongly controls the amount of strain that a material can accumulate prior to failure and that rocks fall within predictable ranges of strain prior to failing under uniaxial compression.

Research Summary:

My research is based on Understanding the demise of upper Cambrian large microbial reefs in Mason County, Texas. I am focusing on interbuild up sediments from the last stages of microbial growth. The idea is to reconstruct the paleoenvironmental history of microbial growth using geochemical techniques (carbonate content variation, clay mineralogy) and thin section studies. I am also working on understanding the origin of stylonodular limestones, a product of burial diagenesis using thin section studies.

Research Summary:

Study of a series of areas, including the initial beds that are overlying an Upper Cambrian microbial reef unit (Wilberns Formation) in Mason County, Central Texas. The main objective of the study is to determine the nature and diagenesis of the carbonate deposits (San Saba member) and interpret the overall depositional environment and diagenetic pathways.
