Evolution of Bedrock Streams in Illinois

Streams record information about the glacial history of Illinois as well as the impacts of human activities. Erosion in bedrock streams can be evaluated in north and central Illinois using cosmogenic nuclides, rock strength, and structure from motion.

Ongoing Projects

Exposure and erosion of the St. Peter sandstone in north-central Illinois.
Channel migration and valley wall rock strength in northwestern Illinois.
