The Applied Geomorphology lab is part of the Department of Natural Resource Ecology & Management at Iowa State University. We study earth surface processes, the evolution of landscapes through these processes, and the impacts of management on process and form. We work in fluvial, glacial, and hillslope settings using various combinations of fieldwork, geospatial analysis, modeling and laboratory experiments.
The North-central section of the Geological Society of America will be holding its annual meeting in Ames next spring, and the Applied Geomorphology lab will be there. Join us for a session we're co-convening on fluvial geomorphology in formerly-glaciated settings:
Pete attended the 2017 GSA annual meeting in Seattle in late October and had a busy week. These were a few of the highlights:
Pete will be contributing to this year's Urban Streambank Restoration and Bioengineering Methods training hosted by the Iowa Storm Water Education Partnership, Oct. 30-Nov. 3, in Des Moines, IA.
