Paul Buchheim - Deciphering Lacustrine Stromatolites: Paleo-lake Hydrodynamics and Chemistry
Stromatolites are microbial build-ups that were known only as fossils until modern living analogs were reported in 1961 from Shark Bay, Australia. Since then, modern stromatolites have been described from numerous locations including Wyoming, Utah, and Colorado. Current studies provide a unique picture of ancient lake hydrodynamics and chemistry not previously understood and have motivated significant revisions in depositional models of this ancient lake system.
