Stéphane Bodin

After graduating at the University Louis Pasteur (France), Stéphane Bodin obtained a PhD from the University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland in 2007. His PhD work focused on the environmental changes throughout the late Hauterivian – Barremian (Early Cretaceous) and their effect on the growth and demise of neritic carbonate factories along the northern Tethyan margin. Stéphane is currently an associate professor in sedimentary geology at Aarhus University, Denmark. His field of expertise embraces shallow-water carbonate geology, chemostratigraphy, and palaeoenvironmental change reconstruction, focusing specifically on the Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Since 2014, Stéphane has served as the SSP stratigraphy science officer.

Xenoconformity! Welcome to the new-born in the stratigraphy family

Every geologist has heard at least once in his career the term unconformity and all its different flavours (e.g. disconformity, paraconformity, angular unconformity, etc…). These terms are part of the basic learning in geology, often taught during first year classes in Stratigraphy. Well, it seems we’ll have to add one term in these lectures: Xenoconformity! In a recently published paper, Carroll1 ...[Read More]
