Profiles in "Earth Surface Processes" Expertise Area

  • Vivoni is a hydrologist who focuses on interactions with climate, ecosystems and landscapes in arid and semiarid regions.
  • Zawacki is a Postdoctoral Research Scholar in the School of Earth and Space Exploration.
  • Ramon Arrowsmith studies active faults, topography, and the geology of earthquakes. He teaches Field Geology these days and is currently the School of Earth and Space Exploration's Associate Director for Operations.
  • Hodges is a transdisciplinary scientist with a broad array of research interests, including the evolution and origin of mountain ranges, the tempo of meteorite impact in the Solar System, and human-robotic exploration.
  • Kelin Whipple is a geomorphologist interested in the interactions among climate, topography, and tectonics. His research integrates field, experimental, remote sensing, and numerical approaches.
  • Walker is a geomorphologist with expertise in sediment transport and erosion, coastal and aeolian geomorphology, environmental fluid dynamics, sand dune ecosystems, and paleo landscape reconstructions.
  • Joel is a geomorphologist interested in the tectonic and surface evolution of orogenic systems. He uses field geology, geochronology, remote sensing, and numerical techniques to investigate modern and ancient landscapes.
  • Now a Postdoc at the at SESE/ASU, Hannes Bernhardt did his PhD in Muenster, Germany on the geomorphology of Hellas Planitia, Mars.
