Earth Surface Processes

Earth Surface Processes

The focus of the Earth Surface Processes group is on earth and environmental processes. Graduate research areas include climatology, hydrology and surficial geoscience including geoarchaeology, geophysics, glacial sedimentology and sequence stratigraphy. Emphasis is placed on understanding the impacts of human activities on the physical environment, including changes in climate, land-use and surface and groundwater quality. Environmental interactions are also studied through interdisciplinary analysis of the archaeological record and through paleoenvironmental reconstruction of past climates and landscapes.
