General Research Interests
Bob Dalrymple was instrumental in the development of the School of Environmental Studies. Cross-appointed from the Department of Geological Science and Geological Engineering, Bob has been active in the School ever since its inception. He is a clastic sedimentologist with wide-ranging research interests that focus on modern and ancient coastal and shallow-marine depositional systems. His research is directed toward understanding how such environments behave at time scales ranging from their very short-term response to tidal and storm processes to their decadal and longer-term evolution in response to sediment supply and sea-level change. Ongoing research projects are based in South Korea and the Ogeechee River, Georgia.
Areas of Potential or Present Thesis/Project Supervision
Bob would be interested in supervising students pursuing interdisciplinary environmental projects in the local bioregion and elsewhere that wish to integrate an understanding of how natural processes are influenced by and, in turn, have an impact on, human occupation of the environment. Studies that utilize the sedimentary record of environmental behaviour as also of interest.
