Hazel Beaumont, PhD student in BDRG, gave a poster presentation at AAPG, in Denver. The title of the talk was 'Deciphering Tectonic Controls on Fluvial Sedimentation within the Barmer Basin, India: the Lower Cretaceous Ghaggar-Hakra Formation '.

The poster discussed the evolving fluvial system of the newly-defined proximal Ghaggar-Hakra Formation, Barmer Basin, India, at outcrop and how it is influenced by tectonics, climate and sediment supply, using facies, architectural element, petrography and palaeocurrent analysis. The analysis of these outcrops is linked to the distal subsurface deposits by the analysis of core data. This data has been set into the context of the evolving Barmer Basin, please see: http://www.searchanddiscovery.com/abstracts/html/2015/90216ace/abstracts/2102348.html
