Tony Endres

Associate Professor, Geophysics (Graduate Officer)

Tony Endres uses hydrogeophysical techniques to characterize near surface hydrological processes, such as soil moisture, evapotranspiration, freeze-thaw cycles, groundwater recharge and nutrient transport, as well as freshwater ice and seasonal snowpacks

Paul F. Karrow.

Paul F. Karrow

Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Quaternary Geology

Professor Karrow's research focuses on Quaternary history, mainly through understanding the glacial sedimentary record and their contained fossils.

Brian Kendall.

Brian Kendall

Associate Professor, Sedimentary Geochemistry & Metal Isotope Geochemistry (Graduate Officer)

Brian Kendall uses isotopes (both metal stable isotopes and radiogenic isotopes) to study a wide variety of geochemical processes, including the evolution of Earth's atmosphere and oceans and the formation of and exploration for petroleum and ore deposits.

Shoufa Lin.

Shoufa Lin

Professor, Structural Geology (Associate Dean International Programs)

Shoufa Lin's research focuses on structural geology and its applications for mineral deposit study and exploration. A major part of his research concerns the structural and tectonic evolution of orogenic belts, Archean tectonics and kinematics and tectonic significance of shear zones. 

Alan Morgan.

Alan V. Morgan

Professor Emeritus, Quaternary Geology and Paleontology

Alan Morgan was an international expert in Quarternary geology, mapping and studying past permafrost structures in Britain and Canada. He also specialized in Quarternary entomology, the study of fossilised beetles as a way to reconstruct past climate conditions.

Chris Yakymchuk.

Chris Yakymchuk

Assistant Professor, Petrology and Economic Geology

Chris Yakymchuk studies how mountain chains form through the process of plate tectonics.
