Dr. Rankey has mounted field campaigns to study Holocene isolated platforms in the Bahamas, Turks and Caicos, French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, and Kiribati.  He has studied sedimentary and geomorphic patterns of over 100 isolated platforms around the globe using a combination of remote sensing, core, oceanographic and seismic data.   His 2008-2009 AAPG Distinguished Lecture tour highlighted some of these recent studies.  As an employee of ExxonMobil, as a consultant, and in academia, his experience and perspectives included study of numerous reservoir analogs (Devonian, Carboniferous, Jurassic, Cretaceous, Neogene), integrating core, well-log, seismic stratigraphy, and seismic attribute analysis to better understand and predict reservoir quality.  He has led numerous trips to ancient and Holocene systems for AAPG, SEPM, and academic and industry groups.
