Dr Walter Capella

Research interests

My expertise is in basin analysis, sedimentary and tectonic processes in tectonically active basins and seaways. As a sedimentologist, my research interests lie in facies analysis and mapping of shallow (deltaic) to deep (turbiditic & contouritic) deposits in outcrops. As a structural geologist, I have explored the mechanisms of formation and late-stage deformation of forelands with kinematic analysis of outcrop-scale structures and seismic profiles interpretation. I collaborate with colleagues in the fields of biostratigraphy, sedimentology, and tectonics; I have teamed up with experts in geophysics, geochemistry, micropaleontology, oceanography and geological modelling.
