Kelin Whipple Arjun Heimsath Ramón Arrowsmith Mark Schmeeckle

Geomorphology seminar Spring 2008

We will read, discuss, and dissect published papers.
This term's' theme will be Cosmogenic Isotope Methods and Applications.
Students will lead discussion and critical evaluation of papers, methods, and potential applications.
