Numerical modelling of erosion rate changes
The impact of climate on mountain denudation remains contested because it is challenging to resolve changes in erosion rates over the timescale of glacial-interglacial cycles i.e. 103-6 years. Combining trapped-charge thermochronometry data together with conventional thermochronometric ages and 10Be denudation rates may allow this temporal gap to be spanned. However, these different techniques integrate erosion rates over different timescales, making the combination of data challenging. The objective of this post-doctoral position is to refine existing numerical models and to develop new models that allow the integration of these data. The ultimate objective is to determine Quaternary erosion rate changes in the European Alps. For any questions and for further details of the project please contact Georgina King (email@example.com).
