I am a retired geologist/geomorphologist and would like to help students and teachers with issues related to geology including plate tectonics, geologic hazards (earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, landslides...), fluvial (=stream) processes, coastal/beach processes. If you have other geologic topics please contact me and I'll see if I can be of help.
