Richard Soare

Faculty, Geography

 

Richard’s current research focuses on geological landscapes of Mars. He is participating in a team of international planetary-scientists (funded by the Leverhulme Trust, U.K.) that will travel to the Parc national de la Vanoise in the Savoie region of France this past  summer (2014). The aim is to map (georeference) the location and distribution of various periglacial landforms in the region, and to develop cross-sectional profiles of these landforms by means of a ground penetrating radar.

Check out Richard’s publications on ResearchGate.

Interests:

Studying the possibility of periglacial landforms and landscapes on Mars.

Contributions to Dawson’s Community:

Richard facilitated a session workshop, “Mars: I am “Curious” Red!” during Dawson’s College Social Sciences Week 2013.
