Biography
Professor Garzione studies the interactions between tectonics and climate in sedimentary basins associated with large mountain belts, such as the Andean plateau and Tibetan plateau. She uses field based sedimentology, geochemical and petrologic provenance studies of clastic sedimentary rocks, and stable isotopes to reconstruct paleoenvironments and sedimentary basin evolution.
