Sedimentary Geology and Paleobiology supports innovative research that advances understanding of the deep-time sedimentary crust and investigates environmental change and evolution of the biosphere through the pre-Holocene geologic record. The program seeks to fund projects that focus on:

  • the evolution of life, ecology, environments, and biogeography based on the study of fossils, sediments and/or geochemical proxies; 
  • geological processes forming and shaping the Earth's sedimentary lithosphere –including the study of mechanisms leading to rich organic and inorganic resources locked in rock sequences;
  • new geochronological projects aiming to measure the rate and sequence of events of pre-Holocene sedimentary and biological (fossil) processes; and 
  • the production, transportation, and deposition of physical, bioclastic and chemical sediments of the geologic record.

Projects that are focused on the study of modern and/or Holocene sedimentary, geochemical and/or biological samples should clearly address how the project will lead to understanding of deep-time (pre-Holocene) geological, environmental, and biological (fossil) processes.
