Research in the Earth Surface Processes Group aims to quantitatively answer two deceptively simple questions: What does the surface of the earth look like? and Why? We use a variety of tools including mathematical modeling, remote sensing, laboratory experiments, and field data collection. We are especially interested in deriving and testing the equations that describe landscape evolution in order to interpret and predict how landscapes respond to changing tectonic and climatic forcing.
