Earth-Surface Processes & Hydrology
The study of the processes of landform change involving the measurement and modelling of earth surface processes. Time scales of study vary from event-based processes driven by individual storm cycles up to process changes over Quaternary time. Sediment transport and the sedimentology of surficial deposits are key elements in understanding landscape dynamics, and the group makes use of field and flume experimental methods. Focus areas include glacio-marine and glacio-lacustrine processes, fluvial processes and landscapes, biogeochemical cycles and contaminants, watershed hydroecology, and land-atmosphere interactions.
