The Rock that Changed the World
by Dr. Sean Gulick
Research Scientist, The University of Texas at Austin
What is the Lecture About?
Sean Gulick has been at the University of Texas at Austin since he completed his Post-Doctoral Fellowship at the Jackson School in 2001. He was co-chief scientist on the seismic imaging project of the R/V Maurice Ewing and received the Jackson School’s Research Achievement award in 2007. Gulick’s primary scientific interest is in the examination of deformation of the Earth in convergent margins, complex transitional tectonic environments such as microplates, and the massive deformation due to bolide impacts. Current projects he is working on include high-resolution imaging of sediments in south-east Alaska’s fjords and continental shelf basin to investigate glacial erosion in a complex tectonic setting and interpretation of a new suite of seismic reflection lines collected over the Chicxulub impact crater.
