PhD candidate Chenliang Wu investigated the Triassic Yanchang and the Jurassic Fuxian formations in Ordos Basin. Chen observed that the top of the Yanchang formation is composed of amalgamated channel sandstone, and this sandy unit represent the last gasp of sediment pulse…
This July, Rice Sedimentology ventured to the Yellow River (China) in response to an engineered flood, which released sediment and water from the Xiaolangdi Reservoir located ~1000 km upstream of the river outlet. The field campaign was led by Andrew…
Tilt current meters (TCMs), produced by Lowell Instruments, are used extensively by Rice Sedimentology to characterize flow velocity at several locations on the Huanghe delta. Here, Lowell Instruments highlights the utility of TCMs for the project.
Chenliang Wu is leading the 2018 field campaign in the Western Irish Namurian Basin to assess paleodynamics recorded in deltaic cyclothems.
Rice University and Boston College conducted a winter survey of the Huanghe delta in China. The group deployed instruments to measure sediment transport on the delta topset as well as within the shallow Bohai Sea.
The EPSP Young Researcher Spotlight is meant to highlight exciting new science coming from students and postdocs. Here, PhD candidate Brandee Carlson describes her research on the Yellow River delta, China. Link: https://epsp.agu.org/young-researcher-spotlight/
