Dynamics & Structure of Earth Materials

Research in this area is focused on mechanistic and process-level studies designed to provide a fundamental understanding of theoretical and applied problems in the Earth sciences, particularly with respect to crustal and surficial processes. The research may cover Quaternary geology, sediment transport, hydrology, cryosphere studies, earthquake mechanics, use of geochemical proxies, regional tectonics and related fields, generally involving examination of the chemical and physical properties of Earth materials and their interaction with the environment in shaping our planet’s surface.
