MARGINS Source to Sink: Science Planning

September 28 – October 1, 1999 – Lake Quinault, Washington
Convener: Charles Nittrouer, Neal Driscoll



The purpose of the workshop was to create the science plan for the MARGINS sedimentology and stratigraphy community. This plan suggests important directions for future research; recommends strategies for accomplishing this research; and considers candidate sites fro detailed interdisciplinary studies. This plan provides a blue print for taking geomorphologic, sedimentary, and stratigraphic processes to a substantially higher level of understanding.
