ICFS 10 - Scientific Programme - Technical Session - Ancient

Ancient

The following sessions within the Ancient theme are proposed for ICFS10:

  • Continental sequence stratigraphy: relative and absolute chronostratigraphic control
  • What is ‘normal’ in the continental rock record
  • Dynamics and evolution of fluvio-deltaic systems
  • Mechanisms of amalgamation: styles and control
  • Variability in the alluvial record: seasonality and climatic zone
  • Erosion and sediment delivery to basins
  • Hierarchy in fluvial systems from the rock record
  • Interactions between rivers and the continental shelf-slope system
  • Ichnological record of channels, levees and floodplains
