Dr Mary Bourke

Geomorphology (Mars and Earth)

My research interests lie in the area of extremes. My goal is to better understand geomorphic processes in extreme environments (deserts on Earth and on Mars) and during extreme events (floods, mass wasting). I currently have several NASA funded projects

Prof Balz Kamber

Geochemistry and Earth process

My research concerns itself with the large-scale elemental cycles on Earth. The overall goal of my studies is to reconstruct how critical elements were cycled between the solid Earth, the hydrosphere, the atmosphere and the biosphere.
