University of Vermont

Cosmogenic Nuclide Laboratory and Geomorphology Research Group

Jane Duxbury (1963-2016)



Jane came to UVM in 2005, from San Francisco State University, with a focus on erosional processes. She pursued a project in the Shenandoah National Park, analyzing stream sediment employing cosmogenic10Be techniques. During her time at UVM, Jane enjoyed some unique international laboratory experience, which took her from the UVM campus in northern New England, to East Kilbride, Scotland, to Livermore, California, and back to Burlington. Jane passed away in January 2016.
