Welcome to Javier Hernández – new Reader in Sedimentology

Posted on 22/04/2013
Javier Hernández

We are delighted that Dr Javier Hernández-Molina will be joining the Department in September 2013 as Reader in Sedimentology.  Javier is currently at the University of Vigo and has a long interest in different aspects of basin analysis, including sedimentary processes and seismic & sequence stratigraphic analysis, continental margin evolution and environmental reconstruction in terms of climate, sea level and palaeoceanographic changes. These different research strands have evolved into integrated studies of continental margins, with special interest in deep-water sedimentary processes and the effects of interaction of bottom circulation along margins, through the study of Contourite Depositional Systems (CDSs).  Much of Javier's work has focussed on the Alboran Sea, Gulf of Cadiz, NW margin of Iberia, the Cantabrian Sea, the Argentine and Uruguayan margins and Antarctica.  He has recently became interested in bottom-current reworked sands (BCRSs) and sandy mass transport deposits (SMTDs).

Dr. Hernández-Molina’s other research interests include deep-water sedimentary depositional systems, diagenetic processes, hydrocarbon exploration, syn-sedimentary tectonics, submarine geohazards, and sea-floor morphologic analysis and mapping.
