Climate and Tectonics
Landscapes are shaped by lithologic contrasts, tectonic uplift, and the erosive forces of rivers, glaciers, and landslides. I am looking for PhD students to investigate this interplay. One project idea is to investigate the utility of morphometric measurements in quantifying tectonic uplift rates in different settings around the world. Projects will involve fieldwork, GIS, and cosmogenic nuclide dating.
