Surface processes and landform evolution.

Current research activities focus on: 1) fluvial terrace generation(Yellow River and Yangtze River, China), linkages between climatic and tectonic processes over timescales scales of 104 to 106 yrs; 2) the evolution of fluvial landscape (Wei River and Shiyang River, China) in response to rapid sub-orbital scale climate change during late Pleistocene.
