Tian Y. Dong
Earth and Planetary Surface Processes
Welcome! I am Tian Y. Dong.
As a geomorphologist, my research uses theories of sediment transport and fluid flow, alongside field and remotely sensed observations, and numerical models, to evaluate the dynamics of modern deposition systems, such as river deltas, and the associated development of sedimentary records.
Currently, as a NSF Earth Sciences Postdoctoral Fellow, I'm working with Professor Timothy A. Goudge as a member of the UT Planetary Surface Processes Group at University of Texas at Austin, exploring the probability distributions of channel belt properties for single-thread and braided rivers.
