In 2008, it’s my first time to visit Prof. Chris Paola in the University of Minnesota. Chris is a respectable geologist and a great leader in the discipline of Erth Surface Processes. During the visit, I was so lucky to have contact with Prof. Vaughan Voller and Prof. John Swenson. I also thank Kyle Straub and Matthew Wolinsky for their time to share their wonderful research results to me.
After the RECM 2007, I visited Prof. Jeff Peakall in University of Leeds. Jeff is also the director of the Sorby Environmental Fluid Dynamics Laboratory. It’s my first academic visit and my first time to UK. During my visit, I was so lucky also to see Prof. Jim Best.
