Structure, Tectonics, and Landscape Evolution

mountains and rocks

This diverse group focuses on understanding how solid Earth forces control the uplift and erosion of mountains chains, the generation and recycling of continental crust, and feedbacks between surface processes and the structural evolution of the mountains over millennial to millions of year timescales through field observations, geo- and thermochronology, proxy records, and numerical modeling studies.
