Title: "The Dynamics and Patterns of River Channel Networks"
Abstract: The planform geometry of river channel networks has long been regarded as a potential tool for inferring tectonic deformation, uplift history, or the signature of climate change. However, in practice, simple interpretation or models have produced ambiguous results. Some studies demonstrate that rivers are passive markers… Read more about EPS Agassiz Colloquium
Abstract: The global propagation of ocean surface waves is a happy example in which a linear theory (almost) explains ocean observations. I’ll review the history of this problem, starting with early work on wave prediction in World War II. The most conspicuous failure in the classic work is that wave sources inferred by great-… Read more about Department Colloquium Series
Title: "Volatile Cycling and Environmental Change on Early Mars"
Abstract: The last decade of orbiter-, lander-, and rover-based investigations of Mars has led to the discovery of thousands of deposits with minerals formed by interaction with water. Hydrothermal, diagenetic,… Read more about Department Colloquium Series
Title: "Exploring Planetary Differentiation Through an Isotopic Lens"
Abstract: . Planetary differentiation occurred at high temperature, high pressure, varying oxygen fugacity and on bodies with varying compositions. The specific conditions at which bodies… Read more about Department Colloquium Series
