Dr. Nordsvan, Adam

Research Assistant Professor

Adam is interested in how and why sediments are deposited, secular changes in sedimentary systems and the sedimentology and duration of Neoproterozoic Snowball Earth events. He has been developing new statistical methods for detrital zircon analysis that help identify potential source regions and aid with palaeogeographical reconstructions.
