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