Dave is examining how vegetation and landscape evolution interact.
Fiona is using topography to detect tectonic activity. She has also been working on detection of channel heads using LiDAR data
John Preston (co-supervised with Andy Dugmore)
John is exploring geomorphic contols on occupation and abandonment of Viking harbours.
Martin Hurst (NERC PhD, now at BGS)
Martin is studying how transient channel incision rates propagate up channel networks and onto hillslopes, and how hillslope topography and soil thickness can be used to constrain the transient evolution of the channel network. The field site of this project is the Feather River in the Sierra Nevada of California. More information can be found here.
I advertise for potential studentships in October/November (click on this link and then click on scroll down menu...you might have to search for it). I am also always looking for quality applicants; if you have solid quantitative skills and are not afraid of computer programming (I will help you learn!) email me and we can discuss a custom designed PhD project. My PhDs ideally combine fieldwork and modeling. Potential projects relate to:
