Geology Seminar: Sam Hudson

University Events - Tue, 01/27/2015 - 00:15

Jan 29 - 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

As part of the Geology Seminar Series sponsored by the BYU Department of Geological Sciences, Assistant Professor Sam Hudson will be talking about Passive Salt Tectonics and Implications for Sedimentary Basin Evolution.

About Sam Hudson:

Dr. Sam Hudson joined the BYU Department of Geological Sciences in the fall of 2104. He earned his MS in Geology from the University of Nevada Las Vegas in 2004 and his PhD in Geology from the University of Utah in 2008. He came to BYU following six years working in the petroleum industry at ConocoPhillips in both their research and exploration organizations. Hudson's research in the areas of sedimentology and stratigraphy seeks to understand the processes responsible for transportation, deposition and preservation of clastic sediments and apply these ‘rules’ to applied problems. 

About the Geology Seminar Series: 

The BYU Department of Geological Sciences is hosting a series of seminars about the latest use of technology in exploration. With the development of remote sensing technology and the exploration of the solar system by spacecraft, geological sciences (understanding the Earth's origin and development) have become increasingly important for understanding not only the earth but the moon, other planets and their moons, and small bodies that orbit the sun.
