Timothy Whalen

Tim's research while at UVM involved measuring the post-glacial isostatic rebound in northwestern Vermont. His field work consisted of surveying river terraces and their paleo-baselevels. During his undergraduate years at UC Santa Cruz, while learning about the geomorphology of California, Tim longed to return to his home state of Vermont and apply his knowledge of surface processes to the landscape.
