BSRG Perce Allen Award

Posted on 15/01/2013

After pioneering work on Cainozoic calcareous algal facies of W Ireland, Malta and later Brazil, Dan Bosence produced the first quantitative sediment budgets for Florida Bay. With Waltham, Pomar and Aurell he developed the most successful forward models for understanding carbonate platform dynamics. He developed with Cross and Wilson carbonate tectono-strat models for rift basins. In addition, his taphonomy work is very highly cited. Recently Dan has produced major studies on the nature of cyclic peritidal carbonates. No researcher in the UK, if not Europe, has produced such a diverse, innovative and substantial body of work on carbonates, modern or ancient.
