This is an oblique aerial photograph of the Iron Mountains and the low gradient piedmont. The white orthogonal lines are roads built in 1942 for Camp Iron Mountain, a training camp used for two years during World War II.
Much of my time is spent thinking about desert processes. I have mainly worked on desert piedmont processes in the Mojave Desert where I have quantified long-term sediment transport rates and depositional processes and rates. Click on the appropriate link to see project summaries.
