Fluvial geomorphology and earth surface processes. Current research includes field investigations in fluvial systems in the Central Valley and in North Coastal California: floodplain processes and topography at intentional levee breaches for riparian restoration; the effect of anthropogenic disturbances on anastomosing rivers; effect of baselevel change on floodplain-fan sediment storage and channel morphology; and effect of land uses on sediment budgets and aquatic habitat. Other research interests include hillslope, watershed, estuarine and tidal wetland processes; influence of wildfire on geomorphic and hydrologic processes; ecology; and applied geomorphology.
