Recent advances in our ability to measure the shape of the Earth’s surface, put rates on surface processes, and ages on landforms, have revolutionised quantitative geomorphology over the past few decades. Here I hope to work through a few examples of how a combination of airborne Lidar and cosmogenic dating have helped our understanding of landslides in Northern California, waterfall retreat in Hawaii, and the timing of paleo earthquakes in Christchurch.
