AEOLIAN LAB

ABOUT US

The Aeolian Lab studies modern and ancient Earth and planetary aeolian (wind-blown) sedimentary systems. Their overarching current and long-term research goal is to develop a process-based, grain-to-landscape scale framework for understanding aeolian systems and apply this framework to interpret the climate histories of landscapes and sedimentary rocks across the Solar System. Their work is guided by the philosophy that aeolian systems uniquely couple atmospheric processes with a planet’s surface sediment transport system and provide the most direct means to access information about atmospheric dynamics from the geomorphic and sedimentary record. Although their work is anchored by aeolian science, the research group also examines fluvial, marine and periglacial sedimentary systems.  The Aeolian Lab uses fieldwork,  remote sensing, laboratory experiments, numerical modeling, and radiogenic and stable isotope geochemistry to explore their science goals.


​Dr. Ryan C. Ewing is the Principal Investigator of the lab. He holds a BA from The Colorado College, and a MS and Phd from the University of Texas at Austin.
