Greg Pope

Associate Professor, Earth and Environmental Studies

Montclair State University Earth and Environmental Studies professor Greg Pope’s research efforts focus on physical geography and environmental geology. He has done extensive research on how rock weathering and soil formation processes are impacted by extreme events such as forest fires; how soils provide a detailed record of climate change over millennia; how ancient and historic stone monuments deteriorate over time; and the environmental changes evident in New Jersey’s soil and sediments. Climatic and weather hazards -- including severe storms, global warming and air pollution—are also of special interest to him.

A frequent presenter at international conferences, Dr. Pope has published articles in a wide range of journals, including Antiquity and Geoarchaeology.
