Geomorphology at the University of Vermont



Geomorphology, glacial geology, and surface processes have a long history at the University of Vermont. Since 1993, Paul Bierman and his students have done surface process research and geomorphology education working both in Vermont and around the world. Geomorphology resources related to UVM include an all new Geomorphology textbook, the cosmogenic nuclide lab, and an assortment of educational websites. You can explore these using the links below and to the left.

  • description of image A new textbook, Key Concepts in Geomorphology, was published in December 2013. Supported by the National Science Foundation, the book (ISBN-10:1429238607) focusses on the fundamental knowledge of our discipline and reflects extensive community input and peer review.
  • description of imageGeology 151 - Geomorphology is a field intensive class about how Earth's surface works. Fieldwork, interactive lectures, and laboratory exercises focus on mass fluxes, force balances, and tools relevant to solving environmental problems.
  • description of imagePeople are Geomorphology at UVM. Since 1994, undergraduates, Masters, and Doctoral students have solved problems in surface processes. We have hosted post-doctoral researchers as well as collaborators from around the world.
  • description of image We are involved in projects all over the world. Short project summaries tell you more about what we have done and learned, provide photographs of field sites, and link to relevant publications and the people involved.
  • description of image An up-to-date list of publications authored or co-authored by Geomorphologists associated with the University of Vermont is available here along with PDFs for downloading (for educational use).
  • description of image We have web-based resources including The Landscape Change Program a database containing >71,000 images of Vermont, educational web-ware that uses images to facilitate learning about rivers and slopes, and a collection of thousands of photos for teaching Geomorphology.
