Bridging Earthquakes & Earth Structure
Spatial distributions of crustal deformation and fault zone morphology divulge the behavior and evolution of fault zones on timescales ranging from seconds to millions of years.Read more
Evolution of Active Landscapes
STGL members study how landforms reflect the rates and modes of erosive processes over time, ranging from tectonically active mountain belts to quiescent regions responding to base-level adjustment.STGL members study how landforms reflect the rates and modes of erosive processes over time, ranging from tectonically active mountain belts to quiescent regions responding to base-level adjustment.Read more
Hazard and Disaster Resilience
We know that natural hazards impact people and human enterprises. But how do we get individuals to take action to protect themselves? Members of our group have studied what causes people to prepare for large earthquakes, and how to communicate with them in ways that motivate them to act.Read more
In the Stanford Tectonic Geomorphology Lab our research centers on exploring interactions between tectonic, geomorphic, and geochemical processes at scales ranging from individual landforms to entire mountain belts. Check out our research page for more information.
