Mackenzie Keith

Mackenzie Keith is a Hydrologist at the USGS Oregon Water Science Center.

Mackenzie joined the Oregon Water Science Center in 2009 as a hydrologist on the Geomorphology Team. Her main research focuses on documenting and understanding recent and historical physical changes to rivers to inform restoration and management decisions. Current projects include characterizing the geomorphic responses of dam removal on the Sandy River, mapping the Willamette River floodplain geomorphology, characterizing the coupled upstream-downstream geomorphic responses to deep reservoir drawdowns at Fall Creek Lake, and developing a geomorphic framework to inform erosion and deposition processes within Willamette Valley reservoirs.
