Detailed Description

Geomorphic influence on resilience of tidal freshwater wetlands to sea level rise

Summary: Want to conduct collaborative eco-geomorphic research at the forefront of climate change impacts? We have a novel landscape-scale ecosystem experiment, using two adjacent tidal rivers with a 9x difference in watershed sediment loads, to determine how sediment availability regulates the resilience or loss of tidal freshwater wetlands as the result of sea level rise and salinization. We have existing sites and data as part of this multidisciplinary study, and welcome additional researchers that can learn additional skills and contribute to improving predictions of wetland and river changes in the future.
