The climate system consists of several components, namely the atmosphere, hydrosphere, cryosphere, biosphere and lithosphere.  All of these components interact, directly and indirectly, with each other to create a specific climate. Thus, studying these interactions is important to advance our understanding of climate system dynamics and to bridge the gap between climate- and other Earth sciences.

My climate system dynamics research focuses specifically on the following interactions:

Climate – Earth Surface (Erosion)

Climate – Tectonics  (Mountain Building)

Climate – Ice (Glaciers)
