Karl Wegmann

Associate Professor of Geoscience

Jordan Hall 2123


Karl is an associate professor of Geoscience in the Department of Marine, Earth, and Atmospheric Sciences and a Faculty Fellow with the Center for Geospatial Analytics. Karl’s research interests include the intersections of the fields of geomorphology, active tectonics, paleoseimology, paleoclimatology, and biogeomorphology. He approaches research problems in a field-based, process-oriented, multidisciplinary manner. His current research addresses questions such as: How do landscapes respond to tectonic and climatic forcing, and are there distinct topographic, erosional, stratigraphic, and bio-genetic signatures of these forces? How constant in space and time is strain accumulation and release across convergent margins? How important are earthquake-triggered landslides to the erosional budget of mountain ranges?
