 Our lab examines focuses on application and issues related to geologic modeling. This research initiative is focused on the role and nature of modeling in stratigraphy, specifically the decision-making processes in conceptual and computer models to observe and evaluate geologic information. Approaches to managing geologic information and the ways uncertainty is managed are examined through the integration of methods and theories from geology, philosophy, computer science, information science, communication theory, and history.

Findings of our research are applied to exploration for natural resources and reconstruction of Earth's past climatic and tectonic changes. Any undergraduate and graduate students interested in working on any of these projects are encouraged to contact Dr. Parcell for more details!
