Geomorphology, Hydrology, and Ecology

The Geomorphology, Hydrology, and Ecology area of interest promotes the fundamental understanding of processes at the Earth’s surface. Research is presently focused on:

  • physical dynamics of tidal freshwater wetland evolution;
  • land use impacts on forest dynamics;
  • sediment transport, channel dynamics, and benthic ecology in rivers;
  • acquisition of nutrient and toxic elements by plants, fungi, and bacteria;
  • natural products, biological signalling, and chemical ecology;
  • estuarine paleoecology; and
  • maintenance and flushing flows in mountainous rivers.
