Steve DeLong is a geoscientist that studies earth surface processes. His interests include how fault zones shape topography across spatial scales ranging from scarps to orogens, and temporal scales from minutes to millennia; rates, pattern, and timing of hillslope sediment production and sedimentary deposition in basins; how flash floods shape arid landscapes and, more generally, how climate and tectonics shape landscapes. He currently serves as lead scientist of the Biosphere 2 Landscape Evolution Observatory, a set of large-scale physical models used to investigate a wide range of interdisciplinary earth systems science topics.
