Ari Matmon



Ari came to UVM in 2000, for a post-doc period, and spent two years in Vermont doing several projects before moving on to the USGS in California, and then Hebrew University of Jerusalem where he now runs his own cosmogenic lab. His interests include determining erosion rates cosmogenically and the relationship between structure, tectonics, and geomorphology.
