Antony Orme, emeritus professor of geography, focuses his research on Earth’s surface processes and landscape evolution, including human impacts and implications. He is an authority on plate tectonics, coastal geomorphology and sea-level change.
Orme’s recent work includes research on the impact of fire on erosion and sedimentation; the effects of floods and coastal storms on watershed erosion and wetland stability; changes of sea level relative to wetland and coastal evolution; and related planning and management implications.
