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.
