Karl Wegmann

Associate Professor

Mapping a Dynamic Planet, Geomorphology

Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences


Karl uses geospatial analytics to study how landscapes respond to tectonic and climatic forcing, and to decipher distinct topographic, erosional, stratigraphic, and bio-genetic signatures of this forcing. He combines geospatial analysis of topographic data with field-based investigations of Earth surface processes. His interests include the intersections of the fields of geomorphology, active tectonics, and biogeomorphology.
