SS21 #7 Ugelvig et al. (2016) Glacial landscape evolution by subglacial quarrying: A multiscale computational approach

https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/2016JF003960 Salutation: We read this paper in a graduate discussion seminar, and I was impressed and delighted by their multi-scale approach to modeling glacial erosion by quarrying. It’s such a nice demonstration of how one can derive a “geologic scale” … Continue reading

SS21 #6 Dongfeng Li et al. (2021) Exceptional increases in fluvial sediment fluxes in a warmer and wetter High Mountain Asia

https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.abi9649 Salutation: This study demonstrates impacts of modern climate change on sediment fluxes from high-mountain source areas, as warming and deglaciation generally increase sediment transport and change some of the source areas. It’s important work for understanding physical climate-change impacts … Continue reading

SS21 #3 Phillips (2014) Badass Geomorphology

https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/esp.3682 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 … Continue reading

SS21 #1 Chatanantavet and Parker (2008) Experimental study of bedrock channel alluviation under varied sediment supply and hydraulic conditions

https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1029/2008JF001044 Salutation: Wonderfully thoughtful mathematical model of bedrock channel erosion that combines abrasion, “macroabrasion,” and plucking. What was awesome? It is a scienific frontier! From: Greg Tucker

SS #24 Downstream changes in river avulsion style are related to channel morphology

Salutation: Great work giving me insight into spatial variations in channel avulsion style as related to morphology. Potentially helpful for better understanding avulsion record and future hazard. What was awesome? I was surprising! From: Anonymous

SS #12 Yu et al. 2018 Where Does Titan Sand Come From: Insight From Mechanical Properties of Titan Sand Candidates

https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1029/2018JE005651 Salutation: I was stuck thinking about aeolian dunes forming on different planets as a problem purely about if winds are fast enough to pick up grains. This work really opened my eyes to also considering if the grains can … Continue reading

SS#5 Koppes and King, 2020

https://agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1029/2020JF005588 It felt like a really eloquent and fresh perspective on a number of issues that are important to me, both technical (e.g., chaos theory and modelling) and societal (e.g., incorporating Indigenous knowledge in our work). Format: paper Salutations: I … Continue reading
