Peter N. Adams

Assistant Professor of Geology
PhD, University of California, Santa Cruz, 2004

My research interests are aimed at understanding the geomorphic evolution of landscapes that result from the interaction of coastal, fluvial, and tectonic processes. Primary methods include real-time instrumentation to examine physical processes, digital elevation analyses to examine landscape form, and numerical modeling to link process and form together. I’m currently focusing on field sites along the Florida Atlantic coast, the Southern California bight, and the Kenai Peninsula in South Central Alaska.
