Fluvial Geomorphology

UPenn; Fluvial Geomorphology

I am generally interested with the propagation of signals through a landscape from precipitation to bed load transport, and how changes in the catchment landscape filters, alters or shreds those signals. In order to understand the propagation of that signal in its entirety it is paramount to determine the dynamics of bed load transport within a single flood, and a series of floods. These tie into a greater interest in understanding how climate and variability in the types of rainfall events (input signal variability) effect bed load fluxes and the evolution of landscapes.
