35 Years of Research on the Monterey Formation and Neogene Upwelling Deposits: Celebrating Bob Garrison’s Life and Career

Conference webpage: Garrison Monterey Research Conference

Dates: May 2018

Venue: Monterey area, California, USA

An SEPM-SEPM Pacific Section research conference designed to review and discuss the 35 years of work since the keystone SEPM Pacific Section Special Volume “The Monterey Formation and related siliceous rocks of California, Volume 15, Society of Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists, Pacific Section, Special Publication.” Robert Garrison was one of the editors and main authors. The volume was transformative. This work turned out to be the fundamental building block of modern ‘paleoceanographic’, with an in depth approach to understanding the Monterey Formation and similar biosiliceous deposits, insights into the Miocene climate, and the significance of biosiliceous upwelling sediments and phosphorites around the globe and their economic importance.

Main Conveners: Invano Aiello (MLML) and Christina Ravelo (UCSC)
