Courses I teach at SUNY Oneonta

 

Research Stuff

  • If you’re a student at SUNY Oneonta looking for independent study/research topics, here’s a list of ideas to explore.
  • My main interests: Rivers: erosion and depositional processes, alluvial stratigraphy, channel stability, flood hydraulics, drainage basin evolution and dynamics, glacial geomorphology, tectonics and landscape response; shallow subsurface geophysics; what makes a good teacher; and every now and then I’ll look at a fossil and go “huh!?…”
  • Here are links to my Publications and presentations about my research activities
  • Here’s a brief intro to Flood effects in the Susquehanna River headwaters, 2006. I haven’t done much with this topic of late, but on every float trip, I still see the evidence of this event...
  • Ground penetrating radar (GPR) study for Archaeological purposes, Pine Lake Environmental Camp (July 2008 to June 2011)
  • Tree throw mound evolution in Delaware's forested soil-mantled Piedmont
  • Doctoral dissertation research with steady state erosion in an experimental basin (this is an old site, but has a lot of animations of experimental eroding landscapes)
  • And here’s my cv

I am hopelessly and happily an academic. By training I am a geomorphologist/geologist. My passion is Earth’s land surface, but the subterranean world always beckons... Like the Earth itself, I mantle myself with soils, sculpt them with wind, glaciers, rain and rivers, but on the inside, I'm all rocks caught in the turmoil of tectonics and metamorphism, melting and hardening, quiescence and change. It's all good, with no apparent end in sight of things to ponder, discover, pursue.

 

 

 

A few of my favorite things

  • Float
  • Hike with my honey (at right)!
  • Try to capture light's interplay with landscape
  • Think and reflect
  • Spend time with friends
  • Share good food with friends
  • Watch a movie
  • Lounge in a landscape
  • Bicycle...bicycle...bicycle
  • Write poetry from time to time to crystallize an idea
