Doctoral

Huayang Luo
Ph.D.      Geomechanics Engineering: Interdisciplinary Program
B.E., China University of Geosciences (China), 1982; M.S., Hohai University (China), 1987

Thesis: GIS-Based Approaches to the Slope Stability Analysis and Earthquake-Induced Landslide Hazard Zonation
The study has four major research components: (1) a GIS-based procedure developed based on one-, two-, and three-dimensional deterministic approaches to slope stability analysis; (2) the causative factors analysis of earthquake-induced landslides; (3) an evaluation of topographic effect of ground motion; (4) the landslide hazard zonation in Nueva San Salvador, El Salvador.
Major Professor: Dr. Wei Zhou

Pier Paul Overduin **
Ph.D.      Soil Physics: Interdisciplinary Program
B.S., Wilfrid Laurier University (Canada), 1988; M.S., York University (Canada), 1998

Thesis: The Physical Dynamics of Patterned Ground in the Foothills of the Brooks Range, Alaska
Permafrost landscapes are patterned by vegetation and soil type. Techniques for measuring the liquid water content of moss and in situ soil thermal conductivity are developed and applied to determine the effect of periglacial ground patterning on heat and mass transfer in the northern foothills of the Brooks Range, Alaska.
Major Professor: Dr. Douglas L. Kane
