Jane Willenbring, Assistant Professor of Earth and Environmental Science

Noon-1 p.m.
Irvine Auditorium, Café 58

Tectonics, erosion, sedimentation, and chemical weathering work together to form the Earth's surface environment where we all live. Willenbring is interested in the response of the landscape to external forcing by the rise of mountains, sea level, ice sheets, and civilizations, and the feedbacks between tectonics, geomorphology, climate, and life on Earth.
