Abstract

I dedicate this thesis to my fiancé, Dan Petrizzo, my parents, Michael Strong and Candace Person, and my sister, Emma Strong, for their exceptional love and support. Acknowledgements I thank the Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 308 for seismic and LWD data, and core material. I thank the Jackson School of Geosciences and BP for financial support. I thank also thank the following people: Derek Sawyer and Julia Schneider for advice, edits, data, and valuable discussions; Mark Andrews for laboratory support; John Germaine for assistance with data processing, trouble-shooting, and interpretations; Matthew Colbert for CT scanning and processing; and David DiCarlo for assistance in medical CT scanning. I thank my committee members, Ruarri Day-Stirrat and David Mohrig for feedback to strengthen my thesis. I also thank Ruarri for providing SEM images and assistance in fabric analysis. Lastly I thank my advisor, Peter Flemings, for his support, both academic and financial. From my two years working with Peter I have developed not only stronger scientific skills, but a stronger character as well. I have learned my potential extends far greater than I had previously thought, and with hard work, I am capable of great success
