Sustained fluvial deposition recorded in Mars’ Noachian stratigraphic record (2020)
Journal Article
Salese, F., McMahon, W. J., Balme, M. R., Ansan, V., Davis, J. M., & Kleinhans, M. G. (2020). Sustained fluvial deposition recorded in Mars’ Noachian stratigraphic record. Nature communications, 11(1), https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-020-15622-0

Orbital observation has revealed a rich record of fluvial landforms on Mars, with much of this record dating 3.6–3.0 Ga. Despite widespread geomorphic evidence, few analyses of Mars’ alluvial sedimentary-stratigraphic record exist, with detailed stud...

Evolution of alluvial mudrock forced by early land plants (2018)
Journal Article
McMahon, W. J., & Davies, N. S. (2018). Evolution of alluvial mudrock forced by early land plants. Science, 359(6379), 1022-1024. https://doi.org/10.1126/science.aan4660

Mudrocks are a primary archive of Earth’s history from the Archean eon to recent times, and their source-to-sink production and deposition play a central role in long-term ocean chemistry and climate regulation. Using original and published stratigra... Read More about Evolution of alluvial mudrock forced by early land plants.
