Campbell Group's Work Featured

Research work by AME's Prof. Charles Campbell and Ph.D. student Tongtong Gou has been featured in the web-based science news site EurekaAlert!. Earlier work by Campbell demonstrated computationally an "elastic regime" in granular flows. Gou's and Campbell's work experimentally confirmed the existence of this elastice regime.

Earlier this year a Journal of Geophysical Research: Earth Surface editor wrote a commentary on another paper dealing with friction in long runout landslides (struzstroms), by Brandon C. Johnson, Charles S. Campbell, and H. Jay Melosh. This paper was also featured in a JGR:Earth Surface Highlight article.
