University of Vermont

Cosmogenic Nuclide Laboratory and Geomorphology Research Group

Colleen Sullivan



Colleen arrived at UVM in summer 2005 and promptly began her research on the Appalachian Mountains. She investigated the erosional history in the Blue Ridge Escarpment in western North Carolina and Virginia using cosmogenic 10Be analysis.
