Research Summary

My research is focused on modern sedimentary environments, measuring rates of sedimentation and erosion and using that information to interpret ancient sedimentary rocks, and inform habitat management.

Current areas of research include:

· Sedimentary evolution of the North Norfolk barrier island coastline in the context of Holocene sea-level change, collaborative project with Birkbeck Geography and UEA NERC Grant GST/02/0737.

· The effects of storms and sea-level rise on coastal geomorphology in northwest Wales, supported by CCW.

· The use of ground penetrating radar in sedimentology, investigating sandbody geometry and heterogeneity, publications on Lower Greensand (Bristow 1994, 1995) and recent aeolian sediments (Bristow et al. 1996, 2000, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2010).

· Sedimentology of Miocene and recent clastic sequences in the United Arab Emirates in collaboration with BGS, see Bristow 1999, Bristow and Hill 1998, and Whybrow et al. 1999.
