Lithosphere & Surface Dynamics Seminar

Starting in Spring 2020, the Structural Geology and Tectonics Group has partnered with Earth Surface Dynamics to present a joint seminar. Check this page prior to each seminar for a brief primer on the speaker and their research.

Seminars are held at 12:00 in NO C6 unless otherwise noted below.

Dr. Alexander Whittaker is a senior lecturer in the Department of Earth Science and Engineering, Imperial College London. He studies the interactions between active tectonics and erosion, transport, and deposition processes.

To learn more about Dr. Whittaker’s work prior to the seminar, you can browse the following papers:

Dr. Helen Beeson is a quantitative geomorphologist and is a post doctoral researcher with the Earth Surface Dynamics Group at ETH Zürich. Her research addresses Earth surface processes and the influence on life.
