Research Interests: Volcanology, magma ascent and eruption mechanics/ physics of volcanic emplacement processes and volcanic landscape processes, especially using New Mexico examples; application of field geologic mapping and the analysis of recent volcanic structures and deposits; and application of numerical modeling to the interpretation of physical processes of volcanism.

Planetary Science, Comparative planetary volcanology of  Mars, Venus, Earth; use of planetary data to understand volcanic processes from well-preserved planetary examples; exploration of Mars with surface landers and rovers. Participant in operations and science analysis of Viking Orbiter, Magellan, Odyssey, Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and, currently, Mars Exploration Rover missions.

The Volcanoes of New Mexico

New Mexico is a virtual outdoor museum of volcanic phenomena. While my research make use of these well-preserved examples of volcanic phenomena to understand the mechanisms of volcanoes and lava flows, my goal as a Museum curator is to help everyone appreciate the fact that volcanoes are one of the single most important natural history characteristic setting New Mexico apart from most of the other Southwestern states. Every major type of volcanic landform occurs in New Mexico, including some of the largest and youngest lava flows and calderas, maars, shield volcanoes and many other volcanic landforms. And an exotic rift valley and classic 'layer-cake' geology have been added for visual beauty as well. It is like another planet.


Field Notes from Mars:  Mars Rover Log

The rovers on the surface of Mars are  21st century natural history expeditions to another planet. Follow along with me and the rest of the Mars Exploration Rover Science Team with my latest summary explaining where the Mars rover Opportunity is and what has been happening recemntly.
