Adam Skarke is a geologist with broad research interests in the fields of marine geology and geophysics. The goal of his research is to better understand the fundamental physical relationships between sediment transport, morphological expression, stratigraphy, and subsurface fluid flow in seafloor environments that span the continental margin from coastal waters to the deep sea. He seeks insight into how these relationships evolve and are linked across a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. His technical approach is field based and focused on the quantitative analysis of, oceanographic, geological, and geophysical data collected with innovative environmental observing sensors and platforms.
