Yuval Bartov is a research professor in the Colorado Energy Research Institute at the Colorado School of Mines. His research interests are sequence stratigraphy in lakes, oil shale deposits, basin analysis and paleoclimate reconstruction from lake deposits. One of Yuval’s most important contributions is the lake-level reconstruction techniques, which were used in the Dead Sea (Lake Lisan) and in the Piceance Creek (Green River Lake) basin. His recent research is focused on understanding the controls of oil shale distribution in the Green River Formation. Before coming to Colorado Dr. Bartov received his PH.D from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.
