PhD Title - Early to Mid Cretaceous Stratigraphy and Palaeoclimatology of Tanzania.

The aim of this PhD project is to improve the stratigraphic framework of the Early to Mid Cretaceous using microfossil biostratigraphy and generate paleoclimate and environmental records using geochemical approaches and by studying microfossil palaeoecology. Study materials include outcrops and cores obtained from shallow and deep exploration wells. An improved stratigraphic framework will also benefit hydrocarbon exploration and the identification of possible source and reservoir rocks in the Cretaceous of Tanzania thereby contributing to wealth creation in Tanzania.
