Alejandro Tejedor

I am a physicist fascinated by Earth processes.  I am using my physics and mathematics background to understand how physical processes leave behind their signature on the spatial and temporal patterns that we observe in nature.  The overarching goal of my research is to develop quantitative frameworks and tools to mine the information contained in those patterns, pursuing the ultimate inverse problem of  inferring processes from form.  Given the ever-increasing amount of earth observations from space, this is a fascinating and timely research challenge with a lot of potential for innovation.  My research journey has taken me across disciplines (hydrology, geomorphology, climate), and although sometimes arduous, it has been a lot of fun.  My research has led  to new and unique perspectives in understanding river deltas, landscape evolution and hydrologic connectivity in diverse settings. 

New Publication:

Check our publication: "Earthcasting: Geomorphic forecasts for society" in Earth's Future.  Thanks to NCED2 for the fellowship that allowed us to start this work!


AGU 2021:

Looking forward to seeing you in New Orleans! Don't forget to put on your agenda this awesome session on Deltas, with excellent contributions.

New Publication:

Check out our new cool publication on Arctic Deltas led by Lawrence Vulis: (i) Lake size exhibits a universal distribution across deltas, and their mean size correlates with temperature. To read more click the link below
