Alice Turkington is a geomorphologist with a particular interest in rock and mineral weathering in a range of geologic and climatic contexts.
The focus of Alice’s research has been theoretical and methodological approaches within the discipline of weathering geomorphology, with a view to advancing our understanding of the underlying control exerted by rock weathering on landscape evolution. These research projects are concerned with examining the landforms explicitly produced by subaerial weathering processes, and the interactions between bedrock weathering processes and other geomorphic processes in producing and controlling certain landscape dynamics. Alice’s longstanding interest in building stone decay and conservation, and inthe response of stone decay to changing climate and environments, continues.
