The Fluvial Geomorphology Group studies the movement of water, sediment, organic matter, nutrients and other molecules through watersheds to better understand watershed hydrology, geomorphology, and biogeochemistry. We also investigate how watershed land use and river channel restoration practices influence hydrologically mediated processes such as surface-groundwater interaction, sediment transport, and channel evolution.

Building trust in the scientific process starts with communicating our research to non-scientists. To that end, our scientists share snapshots of three long-term experiments.
McCarthy's friends started calling her a “waterfallologist” during her undergrad years. A continuing focus on water quality and resources led her to the Stroud Center.
Melinda Daniels, Ph.D., was interviewed as part of an NPR story about a study that’s causing concern among Pennsylvanians who depend on the river for their livelihoods.
