Sedimentology, Sedimentary Geochemistry & Paleobiology is an exceptionally strong and well-integrated graduate field,
and Queen’s University is especially well known for research in Precambrian sedimentology, cool-water carbonates,
reefal environments, coastal environments, the evolution of sedimentary basins, and the early evolution of animals.
The ability to integrate seismic imaging into projects is a strength. All four of the core professors are world
leaders in their respective subdisciplines, have won national and international awards for their research,
and have held significant leadership roles in national
and international geoscience organizations.
In addition to standard instruction and supervision, during the first two years of their program all graduate
students in this field participate in three, week-long fieldtrips (Quebec, New York, and either Nova Scotia or Bermuda)
run by the core professors; this provides an exceptional environment for mentoring and for instruction on physical,
chemical, and biological processes in both modern and ancient settings. There is a fruitful linkage with the
Canadian petroleum industry, with continuous industry support for specific graduate student projects and our
