Research Interests

Dr. Sarah C. Brothers is studying the geomorphic expression and patterning of dune fields on Saturn's moon Titan. The goal of the research is to use the dune fields, their surrounding aeolian-influenced environments, and their interactions with topographic obstacles to better understand the modern surface environment on Titan as well as relatively recent changes in that environment.
