GRADUATE RESEARCH ASSISTANT
Debris-covered glaciers (DCG) on Earth and Mars preserve valuable climate history in their internal structure and surface morphology. Eric employs orbital radar sounding, geomorphic analysis of imagery, and flow modeling techniques to study these features on Mars. Additionally, Eric leads a surface geophysical campaign (ground-penetrating radar, transient electromagnetic) on terrestrial analog DCG to connect internal structure to surface morphology and flow patterns.
