Dr. Pete Moore

  • Adjunct Assistant Professor
Pete is a geomorphologist who studies the processes of water, ice, and sediment movement on the earth's surface, the clues to these processes preserved in the landscape, and the impacts these processes have on people and infrastructure. Originally trained in geology, he spent many spring and summer field seasons studying glaciers in the arctic. Since joining NREM, Pete's interest has shifted toward the modification of postglacial landscapes by streams and the roles that geology, hydrology and land use play.
