The Ferrier Research Group at the University of Wisconsin-Madison investigates the topographic and chemical evolution of the Earth’s surface, from variations in sea level to the growth of mountain ranges to chemical weathering in soils. We use a variety of tools to explore these topics, including laboratory measurements, field instrumentation, and numerical modeling.

We are always looking for outstanding students and postdocs interested in investigating the evolution of the Earth’s surface. Prospective students and postdocs are encouraged to contact Ken Ferrier for opportunities.
