Charles Cannon

Biography

I began my career at USGS in 2008 as a student working on geomorphic mapping of gravel bed rivers in southwest Oregon. Since 2010, I have been working to understand the geology of the lower Columbia River, primarily by way of detailed geomorphic mapping and hydrologic analyses of its tidally-influenced reaches between Bonneville Dam and the Pacific Ocean. Since 2014, I have been working to map Quaternary geology in the region near The Dalles, Oregon. I am interested in using geographic information systems, remote sensing, and modeling for geologic and geomorphic studies.
