Earth, Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences

Geomorphologist Taylor Perron is the Cecil and Ida Green Assistant Professor of Geology. Taylor loves figuring out how landscapes tick. His group is particularly interested in how patterns emerge in landscapes ranging from river networks to ripples in sand at the shoreline. They study how climate – and especially rainfall and sunlight – influence landscape, and even the landscapes that occur on other planets and moons and how they differ from what is seen on Earth.
