Profil

We use field-based and modelling approaches to gauge rates of geomorphic processes from high mountains to lowland sinks worldwide. Much of the work employs cosmogenic nuclides and luminescence dating with the aim to quantify sediment production, transport and deposition in rivers, lakes, dunes and in glaciated terrain. These efforts centre on understanding how climate and tectonics drive the evolution of landscapes over timescales of thousands to millions of years, including three themes:

  • Evolution of mountain topography at high latitudes
  • Postorogenic sedimentary dynamics
  • Cataclysmic events in Earth history.
