Andy Morton graduated with a BA (Hons) from Oxford University in 1975. He joined the Institute of Geological Sciences (now British Geological Survey) in 1976, where he undertook research into the application of heavy minerals in provenance studies. He left BGS in 2000 to form HM Research Associates in order to continue provenance research in sedimentary basins around the world.
Andy joined CASP in 2006 and has been instrumental in advancing our provenance work ever since. He is a honorary professor at Aberdeen University and has co-authored close to 200 publications.
- Establishing a provenance framework for sandstones in the Greenland–Norway Rift from the composition of moraine/outwash sediments
- Reconstructing drainage pathways in the North Atlantic during the Triassic utilizing heavy minerals, mineral chemistry, and detrital zircon geochronology
- Provenance of Carboniferous sandstones in the central and southern parts of the Pennine Basin, UK: evidence from detrital zircon ages
- Constraining recycled detritus in quartz-rich sandstones: Insights from a multi-proxy provenance study of the Mid-Carboniferous, Clare Basin, western Ireland
