About the PNAS Member Editor
Name Dunne, Thomas
Location University of California, Santa Barbara
Primary Field Geology
Secondary Field Human Environmental Sciences
 Election Citation
Dunne has shown by combination of theory and field measurements how runoff and thus erosion develop on hillslopes in humid and tropical landscapes. His theory of saturated overland flow is now accepted worldwide and has stimulated an entirely new direction of research in surficial prosesses.
 Research Interests
Hydrology, sediment transport, and floodplain sedimentation (various parts of the Amazon R. basin and California Central Valley). Debris flow initiation and sediment transport (currently Montecito CA). Field and theoretical studies of hillslope evolution, incorporating the relations between climate, vegetation, hydrology, sediment transport, and Earth material properties (currently East Africa).
