R.W. Dalrymple is a clastic sedimentologist with wide-ranging interests.
Ongoing research projects include: the sedimentology and high-resolution seismic
stratigraphy of the tide-dominated, Fly River delta, Papua New Guinea; the
sedimentology, sequence stratigraphy, and chemostratigraphy of Neoproterozoic
and early Cambrian strata of the Mackenzie and Wernecke Mtns, N.W.T. and Yukon;
the influence of physical sedimentary processes and biological controls on the
textures, facies, and stratigraphy of bioclastic carbonates in the
Oligo-Miocene, Te Kuiti Group, New Zealand; and the sedimentology and
stratigraphy of transgressive, wave-influenced (dominated?) tidal flats, South
