Anupma Prakash is the Interim Dean of the College of Natural Science and Mathematics, the director of CNSM’s Division of Research and a professor of geophysics in the Department of Geosciences.…
Expertise: marine geophysics
Expertise: cultural geography, geography of Alaska
Expertise: reconstruction of ancient ecosystems and climates through identification of pollen and spores preserved in lacustrine sediments or rocks
Expertise: primary research focus is in the field of crustal deformation resulting from active tectonic and volcanic processes. Current research topics include studies of the subduction process in southern Alaska; uplift due to post-glacial rebound in the Glacier Bay area, southeast Alaska; the large-scale kinematics of the Indian-Eurasia plate collision zone in China; kinematics of the San Andreas fault system in northern California; deformation on active volcanoes in the Alaska-Aleutian arc; techniques for estimating deformation models from Global Positioning System (GPS), Interferometric Synthetic Aperture Radar (InSAR) and other geodetic data.
Expertise: glaciology, including using modeling and field data to assess glacier mass changes and to predict the response of glaciers to future climate change and assess the implications on sea-level and hydrology.
