Cosmogenic Nuclide Laboratory and Geomorphology Research Group

West Coast Transect



Working from northern California to southern Washington, we have sampled dozens of drainages in order to map out the spatial distribution of erosion rates and relate them to landscape-scale parameters including lithology and slope.
