ACTIVE MARGINS
TECTONICS, CLIMATE, AND SURFACE PROCESSES INTERACTIONS

Subduction zones, active margins

GOAL: Advance our understanding of how tectonics, climate, and surface processes interact to shape landscapes and influence crustal mass balance

• Investigate links between surface processes, mountain building, and subduction zone dynamics

• Numerical modeling of landscape evolution during mountain building

• Pace, timing, and style of landscape response to mountain building
