Applications in Geomorphology:Mass Movements

Mudflow causing trees to fall and lean.

Effects of geomorphic processes on tree growth

Digging out a tree buried by adjacent hillside erosion, Milledgeville, central Georgia.

slide4

Applications in Geomorphology:Mass Movements

Impact Scars can be dated.

Impact scars from ice flows/jams.

Effects of a snow avalanche on a white spruce.

slide8

Applications in Geomorphology:Mass Movements

Reaction wood:

Conifers form compression wood in response to leaning and flagging.

Deciduous trees form tension wood in response to leaning.

slide12

Applications in Geomorphology: Volcanology

Effects of global-scale cooling caused by a volcanic eruption in AD 536, as seen in a Siberian pine from Mongolia. Which is the frost ring?
