Stratigraphy, Sedimentology and Palaeontology

Sylvie Bourquin

Sylvie Bourquin is CNRS research director at Géosciences Rennes, UMR 6118 of the CNRS, at the University of Rennes (France). She is a sedimentologist and stratigraphist and her research activity is mainly focused on continental environments and more particularly on those from the late Carboniferous to the Late Triassic. The objective is to discriminate the impact of tectonics and climate in the preservation of continental successions and to perform paleogeographic reconstructions at different time and space scales.

The Deep Dust project continues!

In 2019, the EGU SSP blog reported from a workshop exploring Paleozoic dust. By now, the Deep Dust initiative is supported by the International Continental Scientific Drilling program, which is an important step. It is planned to drill in the US in a first project phase. The Deep Dust Drilling Project (DEEP DUST) is focused on understanding paleoclimatic conditions, biospheric responses and climat ...[Read More]
