“The Long Reach of River Networks”

Abstract: Branching networks of rivers are among Earth’s most widespread and recognizable surface features. They have also been discovered on two other Solar System bodies: Mars and Saturn’s moon Titan. What do these striking landscape patterns tell us about the histories of different worlds? I will show how recent measurements and models have provided a new perspective on the origin and evolution of river networks. I will then shift the focus to Titan, where an exotic cocktail of materials and… Read more about Taylor Perron
