In the Field
One of the cornerstones of geomorphic research is quantitative field research; thus, numerous research projects in geomorphology and surficial processes have extensive field components. Dr. Palucis examines sediment transport on Mars and the interior United States. Dr. Magilligan examines the connection between river flooding, climate, and human history in the dry deserts of Peru. Dr. Magilligan and Dr. Renshaw also have active research projects investigating the role of dams in altering sediment transport.
