Tracking the hydro-climatic signal from lake to sediment: a field study from central Turkey (2015)
Journal Article
Dean, J. R., Eastwood, W. J., Roberts, N., Jones, M. D., Yiğitbaşıoğlu, H., Allcock, S. L., …Leng, M. J. (2015). Tracking the hydro-climatic signal from lake to sediment: a field study from central Turkey. Journal of hydrology, 529(Part 2), 608-621. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jhydrol.2014.11.004

Palaeo-hydrological interpretations of lake sediment proxies can benefit from a robust understanding of the modern lake environment. In this study, we use Nar Gölü, a non-outlet, monomictic maar lake in central Turkey, as a field site for a natural e... Read More

The impact of macroalgae on mean and turbulent flow fields (2015)
Journal Article
Thomas, R. E., & Mclelland, S. J. (2015). The impact of macroalgae on mean and turbulent flow fields. Journal of hydrodynamics. Ser. B, 27(3), 427-435. https://doi.org/10.1016/S1001-6058%2815%2960500-5

Large igneous provinces and mass extinctions: an update (2014)
Book Chapter
Bond, D. P. G., & Wignall, P. B. (2014). Large igneous provinces and mass extinctions: an update. Geological Society of America Special Papers, 29-55. Geological Society of America. https://doi.org/10.1130/2014.2505%2802%29

The temporal link between mass extinctions and large igneous provinces is well known. Here, we examine this link by focusing on the potential climatic effects of large igneous province eruptions during several extinction crises that show the best cor... Read More

The impact of significant input of fine sediment on benthic fauna at tributary junctions: a case study of the Bermejo-Paraguay River confluence, Argentina (2014)
Journal Article
Blettler, M. C. M., Amsler, M. L., Ezcurra de Drago, I., Espinola, L. A., Eberle, E., Paira, A., …Drago, E. E. (2015). The impact of significant input of fine sediment on benthic fauna at tributary junctions: a case study of the Bermejo-Paraguay River confluence, Argentina. Ecohydrology, 8(2), 340-352. https://doi.org/10.1002/eco.1511

This study examines the morphological features, suspended sediment inputs and hydraulic conditions within a large river in association with ecological patterns before and after a tributary confluence. In order to examine these effects, the macroinver... Read More

Journal Article
Wynn, R. B., Huvenne, V. A., Le Bas, T. P., Murton, B. J., Connelly, D. P., Bett, B. J., …Hunt, J. E. (2014). Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs): Their past, present and future contributions to the advancement of marine geoscience. Marine Geology, 352, 451-468. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.margeo.2014.03.012

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) have a wide range of applications in marine geoscience, and are increasingly being used in the scientific, military, commercial, and policy sectors. Their ability to operate autonomously of a host vessel makes th... Read More

Near-bed and surface flow division patterns in experimental river bifurcations (2014)
Journal Article
Marra, W. A., Parsons, D. R., Kleinhans, M. G., Keevil, G. M., & Thomas, R. E. (2014). Near-bed and surface flow division patterns in experimental river bifurcations. Water Resources Research, 50(2), 1506-1530. https://doi.org/10.1002/2013WR014215

Understanding channel bifurcation mechanics is of great importance for predicting and managing multichannel river processes and avulsion in distributary river deltas. To date, research on river channel bifurcations has focused on factors determining... Read More

Driven around the bend: spatial evolution and controls on the orientation of helical bend flow in a natural submarine gravity current (2014)
Journal Article
Sumner, E. J., Peakall, J., Dorrell, R. M., Parsons, D. R., Darby, S. E., Wynn, R. B., …White, D. (2014). Driven around the bend: spatial evolution and controls on the orientation of helical bend flow in a natural submarine gravity current. Journal of geophysical research. C, Oceans, 119(2), 898-913. https://doi.org/10.1002/2013jc009008

Submarine channel systems transport vast amounts of terrestrial sediment into the deep sea. Understanding the dynamics of the gravity currents that create these systems, and in particular, how these flows interact with and form bends, is fundamental... Read More
