Cassy Mtelela

Cassy is working on the sedimentology and stratigraphy of the late Cenozoic Lake Beds succession, Rukwa Rift Basin, Tanzania. His project applies a variety of approaches including detailed outcrop-based geologic and facies mapping, sandstone petrography and dating, to document sedimentology of this fossiliferous mega-sequence in the Rukwa Rift Basin. The goal of this research is to establish a formal stratigraphy for the Lake Beds Group and evaluate their potential for generation and accumulation of hydrocarbon.
