Research | Geomorphology

A scientist works with equipment in white sandThe Geomorphology group at the University of Arizona works to understand connections between surface processes and landscape evolution over a broad range of temporal and spatial scales. We apply a variety of methods in our research, including field studies, remote sensing analyses, laboratory experiments, and mathematical modeling. Research focus areas include fluvial, hillslope/soil, tectonic, and eolian geomorphology with applications ranging from natural hazards to the extraction of paleo-climate and erosion rate proxies from topography.
