LAWRENCE — A group of geology graduate students recently traveled to Nepal — home to eight of the world’s 10 tallest mountains — to explore compelling research questions about how these landforms change over time. Understanding mountain growth illuminates tectonic movement related to hazardous seismic activities, such as earthquakes. Michael Taylor, professor of geology, led the National Science Foundation-funded trip to train the next generation of geologists in the field.
