Colorado Front Range, River Incision Rates and Moraine Ages



We worked with Taylor Schildgen, a Williams College undergraduate at the time, to prepare and process samples from fill terraces in Boulder Canyon on the Colorado Front Range and several Colorado moraines. These data were used to estimate terrace ages and incision rates.
