I am a research sedimentologist at a major oil company. I study turbidites, and am most interested in their depositional architecture and flow properties. “OffTheShelfEdge” is a way for me to share my research and ideas on turbidites, and other depositional environments. I am a fan of flying small airplanes, and when up in the air take a lot of photos of modern depositional systems (see the “Geology on the Wing Wednesdays” series). Hope you enjoy the blog!

This blog is not a peer-reviewed journal, a final archive of my writing, a sponsored publication, or the product of gatekeeping and editing. The writing is essentially as it came from the keyboard: spontaneous, unproofed, unrevised, and corrected afterward only when necessary to address mistakes that grossly effect the intent. Where such changes have been made they are sometimes noted, and sometimes not.
Oh, yeah, and one more thing: Feel free to challenge me, disagree with me, or tell me I’m an idiot in the comments section, but I reserve the right to delete any comment for any reason whatsoever… yeah that’s right.
