This research group seeks to understand changes in land and water under both natural and anthropogenic forcings. Current projects focus on three major questions:
- How did ice sheets and global sea-level change since the Last Glacial Maximum, ~26,000–19,500 years ago, and what can this teach us about past and modern landscapes, ice dynamics, climate, and glacial-isostatic adjustment?
- What causes river systems to aggrade and incise, how does this relate to changes in climate and land-use, and how do we interpret the fluvial terrace record?
- How do we build effective, inexpensive, and open-source field instrumentation and deploy it to answer pressing questions about water (in all its forms), weather, climate, and geomorphic change?
