THE MARINE RECORD of CONTINENTAL TECTONICS AND EROSION

Objective



The Network will include the following aspects of training in common to capability in geochemical and materials analysis, having been responsible each young postdoctoral researcher. (I) Initial identification of project, for many of the innovations in this subject. The aim is to apply training in realistic project definition and research targets. (2) Training in relevant laboratory, analytical and modelling techniques by qualified state-of-the-art techniques in geochemistry and materials analysis to particular "time-slices" of the sedimentary records and extract information personnel. (3) Training in presentation skills, both oral and graphic. concerning continent generation, erosion and the influence of tectonics These will be required for Network seminars, international conferences, and contributed articles to the refereed scientific literature.
including palaeogeographic change on 107(exp.7) to 10 (exp. 9a) timescales. The approach involves the identification of key time-slices within the sediment record and comprehensive geochemical studies aimed at identifying and quantifying the above processes. In so doing young postdoctoral research workers will receive a broad training in advanced techniques of geochemical analysis, modelling and tectonic processes. In addition to making a major contribution in this area of science the Network aims through selection of high quality individuals to train young researchers to become future leaders in academic or industrial research.
