Research in the main channel

SAFL research on deltaic systems is aimed at enhancing predictive understandings based on field, model, and computational studies of how deltas grow and respond to stress from natural and human induced perturbations. Working with National Center for Earth-surface Dynamics (NCED) colleagues, we examine factors such as sediment cohesion, ecological succession, and land use practices in determining the sustainability of deltas around the world.
