Matthew Jungers



Matt's projects at UVM took him all over the world, from the Great Smoky Mountains to Madagascar, from New Zealand's North Island to the Susquehanna River in Pennsylvania, and to the Drift Creek Wilderness of Oregon's Coast Range. To complete his samples' analyses, Matt had the occasion to log more miles across the planet, from Israel to Livermore, California. Matt's research employed the methods of 10Be analysis to determine sediment production and transport rates on hillslopes within varied tectonic and climatic settings. Being a carbon conscious guy, though, be sure he bikes around most of the rest of the time.
