Fluvial Geomorphologist New England


       Geological studies can provide important information on the location, magnitude and frequency of various flood hazards such as floodplain inundation, bank erosion, and channel avulsions. A comprehensive understanding of potential hazards is essential for communities that are developing flood mitigation plans and struggling with land use issues. We use a variety of techniques to identify potential hazards and determine the underlying natural and human factors contributing to their location and severity.

  • Sediment transport analysis

  • Historical channel migration

  • Bank erosion and landslide potential

  • Floodplain mapping

  • HEC-1 and HEC-RAS modeling

  • Paleoflood discharge estimates
