Marine Geomorphology: Geomorphic Processes, Hazards, and Paradoxes in Monterey Canyon
Douglas Smith
Introduction While traditional geomorphic studies focus on the geologic processes and products that shape our terrestrial topography, there are equally exciting opportunities to explore the other 71% of the planet ...

What Do Landslides Have to Do with Carbon Budgets?
Mary Ann Madej
The development of carbon markets as one tool to reduce greenhouse gases and their role in global climate change has raised the interest of society in carbon sequestration and release. Much current research is now ...

How to reconstruct past debris flows using tree rings
Michelle Bollschweiler
1. What is a debris flow and what are the associated problems? Debris flows are a type of mass movement involving rapid transport of water and saturated material (sand, mud, blocks, organic matter, ...) down steep, ...

The Role of Microsites on Alpine Timberline Advance Associated with Climate Change
Adelaide vignette Johnson
Upward advance of timberlines, associated with climate warming, is occurring in the Pacific Northwest (PNW) as well as many other mountainous regions of the world. Timberline advance has gained recognition ...

A Case Study: Geomorphic Effects of the 2009 Big Pole Fire, Skull Valley, UT
Kathleen Nicoll, University of Utah
Introduction On August 6, 2009, a lightning strike caused the Big Pole Fire to break out in Skull Valley on private and Federal lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management, the US Forest Service, and the State ...

Landscape inversion on Earth and Mars
Devon Burr, University of Tennessee, The
PROCESS: Landscape inversion is the process whereby relative topographic elevations become inverted such that previously low-standing features become high-standing. This relief inversion occurs through induration ...

Comparative planetology: the geomorphology of volatile cycling and catastrophic flooding
Devon Burr, University of Tennessee, The
INTRODUCTION: Three planetary bodies in our Solar System show landforms that provide evidence of liquid flowing over the surface, either at present or in the past. The surface flow of liquid is evidence for a ...

Alluvial Fans and Archaeological Sites on the East Range of Fort Huachuca Military Reservation, SE Arizona
Michael Droz
Introduction In the American Southwest, a ubiquitous and recognizable geomorphic landscape feature is the bajada, consisting of a series of broad, laterally coalesced alluvial fans. These alluvial aprons emerging ...

Processes and rates of channel change following disturbance by debris flows
Christine May
The Oregon Coast Range is a dynamic landscape, with steep hillslopes mantled by a thin veneer of soil. In this and other mountainous regions of the world, debris flows play a major role in routing sediment and ...

Assessing Future Flood Risks in the Taihu Basin, East China
Gemma Harvey
The past decade has seen a significant transition in the management of fluvial and coastal flood risks from flood 'defence' (employing 'hard engineering' measures such as flood embankments, ...
