South Fork Silver Creek, CAThe Scheingross Surface Processes Lab is part of the Department of Geological Sciences and Engineering and the Graduate Program in Hydrologic Sciences at the University of Nevada Reno. The lab studies a broad range of processes that act to shape the Earth’s surface, create sedimentary archives, and influence climate over both human and geologic timescales.  Our research uses a combination of field work, controlled physical experiments, geochemical analyses, remote sensing, and theory to address problems in geomorphology, carbon cycling, and beyond.
