Gregg Snedden, Ph.D.

Biography

Gregg is a research ecologist with the Wetland and Aquatic Research Center.  Gregg is broadly trained in aquatic ecology, fisheries, wetland plant ecology, and coastal physical oceanography.  Gregg’s research interests include fluvial and physical oceanographic drivers of coastal wetland hydrology, impacts of hydrology to wetland plant performance and soil dynamics, effects of Mississippi River diversions on receiving basin wetlands, and most recently, teleconnections between coastal sea-level variability and global-scale climate dynamics and the implications these linkages may impart to coastal wetland landscape sustainability.
