Our research is unified by a
focus on a fundamental component of the Earth-surface
and their surroundings—that
recurs in varying but fundamentally related forms across
a wide range of environments
and scales. Our three research
initiatives (“Integrated Programs” or “IPs”) approach channel networks from a source-to-sink perspective, looking at watersheds
(Watersheds), individual stream reaches (Streams), and depositional systems (Deltas).
Our community engagement activities are led by
our Education, Diversity,
and Knowledge Transfer
Integrated Programs. These
three initiatives work in parallel with the research IPs to
educate a diverse audience
(K-12 students, teachers, and
the public) about the importance of understanding and
managing the Earth’s surface
environment. We transfer
our scientific knowledge to
practice, foster synergistic
collaboration with other
community initiatives, and increase participation in science among under-represented groups, with a special focus on Native
