Brandon J. Vogt

Brandon VogtI earned a BS from the University of Missouri and MA and PhD from Arizona State University. My primary research interests rest in geomorphology, geomorphometry, terrestrial lidar, and Colorado's lightning climatology. I blend these interests as I explore interactions between natural / physical processes and landsurface textures.

I run the Geomorphology Research Lab, a place well-equipped for collaborative, multi-disciplinary research in the physical sciences.

I teach geography courses in introductory geospatial technologies, physical geography, geomorphology, geographic information systems (GIS), snowpack assessment, and co-teach a humanties course that blends sound and landscape.

In 2014, I am working on a project that uses lightning activity as a proxy to understand summertime atmospheric dynamics in Colorado, and a project that uses rock glaciers as geoindicators of environmental change in Colorado's San Juan Mountains. I enjoy music, mountains, thunderstorms, snow, sandstone, photography, traveling, coffee, and anything Colorado.
