Research

Research

Dr. Martin's research began by examining wildfire impacts on geomorphology. From this research her interests spread to other aspects of geomorphology/ecology interactions such as tree throw.

New research projects include investigating bioturbation impacts on soil production, soil mixing and sediment transport. There are also projects involving geomorphic and hydrological and/or ecological interactions currently underway.
