Susanne U. Janecke is a Professor in the Geology Department at Utah State University. Her specialty is regional tectonists with an emphasis on the structural evolution of strike-slip and extensional systems in western North America. Current Research topics include: structural geology of the San Andreas fault at its southern tip, crossing but coeval strike-slip faults, growth structures, neotectonics, geologic mapping, Lake Bonneville and the diversion of the Bear River. She earned a BS from the University of Michigan, MS from the University of Arizona and Ph.D. from the University of Utah. She has been a professor at USU since 1991 and is married to James P. Evans (http://works.bepress.com/james_evans/). I organized the publications by topic. Most papers relate to multiple themes and therefore appear under different headings. Select " browse article type" for a chronological list of publications and links. "Abs." is an abstract for a professional meeting. See my web page or contact me for reprints at susanne.janecke "at" usu.edu Other useful sites are listed in the links below. Note that Pinterest is a great platform for science, especially its visual aspects. Archived geologic processes you will find in my Pinterest boards include: liquefaction, structural geology, dunes, glacial and periglacial landforms, mass wasting, volcanism, lidar, deltas, geology and geophysics web sites, and the electromagnetic spectrum.
