Pete is a geomorphologist who studies the processes of water, ice, and sediment movement on the earth's surface and the clues to these processes preserved in the landscape. Originally trained in geology, he spent many spring and summer field seasons studying glaciers in the arctic. In recent years, Pete's interest has shifted toward the modification of postglacial landscapes by streams and the roles that geology, hydrology and land use play.
