John’s research focus is the quantification of erosional mass flux associated with slope failures under differing environmental and geomorphic boundary conditions. Major research themes include:

(1)   Development of automated landslide detection techniques using high-resolution satellite sensor data as well as the use of high resolution topographical datasets derived from LiDAR and TLS.

(2)   Numerical estimates of erosion using negative power law scaling of landslide magnitude-frequency distributions.

(3)   Use of cosmogenic isotopes to quantify sea cliff recession during the Holocene.
