Areas of Expertise
Rivers, deltas, coastlines, flooding, sediment.
Douglas Edmonds studies how sediment movement, fluid flow and bed topography interact to create rivers, deltas and coastlines. He is interested in the physical interaction of these processes and how they create these environments. We focus on rivers, deltas and coasts because they are hotspots of human habitation and recorders of earth history. Predicting their evolution into the future is essential as climate is changing, and understanding how their deposits accumulate is necessary for reading the stratigraphic record.View full bio
