Professor Owens ' research focus on Quaternary geology and geomorphology of tectonically active mountain belts and their forelands. He is particularly concerned with quantifying timing, and rates and magnitudes of landscape evolution in these regions to understand dynamics and interactions between tectonics, Earth's surface processes and climate. This involves remote sensing, field mapping, geomorphic and sedimentological analysis of landforms, and geochronology. He has concentrated his efforts on two major geographic-tectonic regions: Himalayan-Tibetan orogen; and the Cordilleras of North and South America. These regions provide two of the best natural laboratories for understanding dynamics of and interaction between geomorphic, tectonic and climatic processes along active plate margins. He has also undertaken research in other tectonically active regions, including: Red Sea margin in Yemen; and the Atlas and Anti-Atlas Mountains of Morocco. Ultimately, these studies provide analogs for understanding and modeling the evolution of ancient Mountains. Professor Owen directs two laboratories, one for optically stimulate luminescence dating and the other for terrestrial cosmogenic nuclides.
