Richard Dunn, PhD, chairs the Department of Earth and Environmental Science at Norwich University.

He received a BS in geology and a BA in anthropology from the University of Minnesota, Duluth, an MS from Wichita State University, and a PhD in geology from the University of Delaware. With expertise in stratigraphy, sedimentology, and geomorphology, he works on interdisciplinary projects involving archaeological questions and on the glacial geology of Vermont. His archaeological geology research is conducted in Greece, Portugal, Israel, Cyprus, and Easter Island and focuses on reconstructing past landscapes and sedimentary systems to put human activity into its proper paleo-environmental setting. In Vermont, he has conducted geological mapping for the state to identify natural resources and establish glacial history, and he has been studying sedimentation associated with fluctuation in the margin of the last ice sheet. His research routinely includes undergraduate students. His teaching interests include glacial and Quaternary geology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, geomorphology, and the evolution of earth. Dunn currently serves as the Vice Chair of the Archaeological Geology Division of the Geological Society of America and is past president of the Vermont Chapter of Sigma Xi, the international society for scientific research.
