Many of these processes occur so rapidly and unexpectedly that they have daunting consequences.We are poorly equipped to predict their nature and possible impacts due to the lack of scientific understanding.Our research interests cover a wide spectrum of earth scientific disciplines and include timing of ice ages, subglacial erosion rates, uplift rates of Pleistocene terraces, and a better understanding of the production systematics of cosmogenic nuclides.We apply the full spectrum of cosmogenic nuclides, including the routine extraction of A 3-dimensional model of the Mont Fort and Sivier glacier system, showing well-preserved 'Egesen' and 'pre-Egesen' moraine systems that are studied to understand the glacier and climate changes during the Late Glacial Period (14.5 - 11 ka ago) in the Swiss Alps.
Different isotopes are used for different lengths of times.
This long period of applicability is an added advantage of cosmogenic nuclide dating.
In particular, the impact of current environmental change on the nature of Earth Surface Processes is hardly predictable.
It is a high priority challenge for modern earth sciences to better understand such processes.
