Laramide Erosion Rates and Surface Dynamics



We are collaborating with David Dethier and his students at Williams College to better understand the rate at which drainage basins, developed in both bedrock and Tertiary fills, are eroding. We have processed additional samples from several Rocky Flats surfaces on the Colorado Front Range.
