Dr Mark Furze
Associate Professor in Quaternary and High Latitude Environments
Welcome to my website. I am an Associate Professor and Discipline Advisor in the Earth & Planetary Science Division in the Department of Physical Sciences at MacEwan University, in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
My research and teaching interests are in Quaternary (Ice Age) environments and the geomorphology of high latitude landscapes and marine systems. My recent work has included research on the extent of the Laurentide Ice Sheet in the Canadian Arctic during the maximum of the Last Glaciation, isostatic sea-level change, the deglaication of the NW European continental shelf, and the marine record of deglaciation in complex archipelago settings, as well as refining radiocarbon chronostratigraphic tools. More information can be found under the Current Research and Earth Science Courses links.
I also have several ongoing 400-level undergraduate research opportunities – chances for students to gain direct hands-on research experience working on diverse research topics related to my interests above. If you’re interested, check out the information in the Research Opportunities link.
