SS21 #3 Phillips (2014) Badass Geomorphology

Although the notion of geomorphological badassery may seem silly at first, Jonathan Phillips makes a compelling case for its usefulness as a conceptual framework. Reading this paper also led me down a winding rabbit hole of nonlinear dynamics and chaos that made me rethink my understanding of how coastal systems work, and shaped a key part of my PhD thesis this year. But most of all, it was just a joy to read, and a good reminder that we can be serious about our research while having fun at the same time.

Why was it awesome? It was Surprising, I couldn’t stop thinking about it!, It made a key connection for me!
